From Backyard Jungle to Upcycled Secret Garden

This spring was the time to take control of our backyard and here are some of the before pictures AND almost finished after And of course I forgot to take the REAL before pictures- it used to be a weed jungle however it is now at a manageable level.

We decided to lay flagstone over all them weeds. The first day we carried 800 gallons, we thought we were going to die from all the pain, so we asked a friend with muscles to help us.
Then we decided to get dirt bags to plant our vegetable garden in and here they are.

We got so ambitious we even build some compost bins out of pallets.
Here come the first flagstone.

The bare spot is where my greenhouse is going to be build on.

Here are some of the finished spots on the yard. We used all the things that were laying around having no purpose. The bicycle the neighbor threw out so I painted it white.

 The rockgarden got created because I had left some cement bags out in the rain.

In the next blog I will show our upcycled greenhouse until then have a great time creating!
