This week we had the landscaping done. We had three companies draw up a design based on the type of look we like. We're both big on clean lines, and I love me some hedges and hate clutter (even in the garden) so the simplicity of what we got was exactly what I wanted. The kinda empty area where there are some random rocks is reserved for my annuals. It's too late in the year for that so it's looking a bit sparse. The river birch in front of the bay window is also looking a bit sad so late in the season, but I'm hoping it will fill in nicely this Spring. The sprinklers go in on Monday and hopefully we'll have some grass by the end of the week.
