Yard Update: September

It’s been a while since we made a good old update on the yard at 3675, but don’t worry – we haven’t forgotten our first born and our favorite labor of love. We’ve been a little busy with 2381 lately (which doesn’t even have a yard, really – just a lot of really big trees), but 3675’s landscape continues to evolve, in spite of our record-breaking drought, even (thank you, rain barrel system!).

And this week, we began our front-yard transformation to native, drought-tolerant plantings!

BONUS: we dug out a ton of mulch that had been layered up over the years and was basically serving as a red carpet for termites, should the rain ever decide to return…

BEFORE: The front of our house was ringed with multiple levels of planter beds, FULL of a foot+ of mulch apiece. Buh-bye!

Chances of a rainy, gloomy holiday weekend are GOOD! YAAAYYY!
