Many Changes

The previous owners found themselves unable to take care of the property so it has become very overgrown. Each week there are many changes taking place.
The biggest job right now is pulling up all the sheets of weed stop that are three layers deep in some places. The poor trees are struggling because their root system is not deep because of it. Kaleb and I have been busy trimming trees, removing juniper bushes that were planted in the 60's and tackling the weeds. It is a lot of work but very rewarding.
 Underneath the over grown terrain under the trees I found berry bushes. I guess we will have to wait to find out what kind. It is very exciting to see what we will find next.
 Kaleb and I spent hours removing juniper bushes under the pine trees on the north side of the yard. Some neighbors offered to help us remove this patch which we were dreading.
 It took us only a couple hours with a chain saw and pulling the stumps out with a truck.
We have tons more to remove but at this point the front yard is looking really nice and clean. We have people constantly walking by saying how much they like what we have done in such a short time. There is so much to do that it will take us all year to just get caught up with the years of neglect.
 It just needs lots of TLC.
