Wyatt’s Gardening at Our House Again

Our gardening friend, Wyatt, and his people were busy at our house again making our yard beautiful, maintenance free, and dog friendly. You may remember Wyatt from the time he transformed our back yard from a mud pit to a backyard oasis or the time he helped update our front yard. This time Wyatt and his people were hard at work at our beach getaway planting plants that will do well in the coastal climate, moving plants around, and making the yard a fun place to hang out when we’re not walking on the beach.

A day of hard work must be followed by some play time on the beach. Wyatt and his sister, Stanzie, headed down to the beach for a nice run.

Time for some fun!

Look Who Came to Visit! Wyatt!

Look who came by to visit yesterday. Wyatt from Gardening with Wyatt came over with his peeps to see about sprucing up our front yard. They did our back yard last year.  I can’t wait to hear their ideas.

Our dog-friendly back yard has filled in nicely. The perennials are coming in and it’s looking so much better than this time last year. We’re excited to revitalize the front yard. Our house was built in 1972 and a lot of the landscaping was put in at that time. Now, forty-some years later, the bushes are straggly and things need a boost. We’ll be sure to post pictures of what they come up with.
