Landscaping and Lumberjack update August 20 2013

 Right side of back of the house. 

Labor Day weekend  2012we moved into our new home.
The property behind the house was a virgin, in that nothing had been touch for years. Well I should say very little. There were a few trees that were cut down, and left where they landed. But for the most part the briars, brush, etc were growing. The ground was full of leaves from one season to the other.  

After I was given a price of $1200 to clear a small portion of the brush I thought I can do this. How little did I know what was going to be involved
So I started in to this project, clearing out brush, trees that had been cut down and left.
There were two big piles of  trees and brush that I had to burn.
 Left side down the center in the back.
After a few months fall came and and a lot of the brush died off, and I removed those. 

 Look toward the Abby Trial

I thought this would be great to make a trail Cutting a path to walk on.

We have had a great time working on this project and we have not finished yet, and of course there has been a continue working on the project. The light has hit the ground and has begun growing grass rather then weeds. So we have cut the grass several times. And we have put in several little landscaping project to make the property; look good.
