finally… the front flower bed is done

my grandson, and a friend of his, started work around 10:30… we had planned this for a while and set today as the day to get it done… the weather was cooperative as the sun came and went behind clouds and there was a very nice breeze…

they removed all the pots and the heavy bird bath… made me giggle a bit because it looked like they were wearing a uniform

they took out the grass, removed all of the mulch, and then levelled the soil…

there were tools and equipment everywhere as they worked… they laid down landscaping cloth and shovelled the mulch back into the bed…

putting the bird bath back was hard work as it is really heavy and I wanted it in just the right spot…

then they placed the pots individually while I stood back and had them move an inch this way or that, lol…

finally they cleaned up the edges and made sure the landscaping cloth was all covered… we will need to pick up a few more bags of mulch to finish it off…

all the tools, containers and garbage were put away by 3… they are teenage boys, so this was rather amazing… it looks great

once the trim and door are freshly painted it is going to look super, although we need to do a little work on the other side…

I am very happy…
