Ok, so we have this big problem in the yard...
SEE it? A nice big bare spot where I jump down from the deck to get to the yard!
Just LOOK at this!
The lawn is BALD!
Mom got this idea that she wants to make a "lower patio" out of cement/pavers or something to cover all that up and make a nice pathway over to the door of the gate...like THIS
BUT mom got some estimates for this type of job last summer and after she recovered from the 3 heart attacks she had (1 for each estimate), she and dad decided that pricewise, it was like putting a new CAR in the backyard (no joke!)
SO...it's time to get creative and think up a plan B.
Mom and dad were all excited when they found THESE at Sam's Club!
STUBBY! We thought of you right away and totally jumped on it when we found out that they are made from RECYCLED SHOPPING BAGS!!!
So feeling very righteous and GREEN...mom lugged them out to the problem area and she and Holden moved them around like some sort of yard puzzle for the landscaped challenged....
Hmmmmmm....we can still see the nekkid area.........
I don't know about these, they look pretty silly. I think we're going to repurpose them and move them to the SIDE of the house to make a walkway from the gate to the front of the house.
Ok...on to plan C!!!! Guess this weekend we'll be checking on sales for pavers! Mom is having DIY angst at the very thought of it.
Happy Hump Day everyone
