one small step for man...

... one giant leap for our yard!

If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw what we were up to this weekend, if you're not you should know that it was VERY exciting!

The kids had a lot of fun getting in on the action too!

In about four hours our good friend Jay was able to  rip out all our Juniper stumps we had remaining, as well as a couple of other small bushes, but more importantly, took down our little hill and made our front yard almost completely level, even more level then I thought we'd be able to get!

We still have a long way to go, but this was a big "first" step. Now we need to finish leveling tings out, put in a new sprinkler system, and lay some sod/seed. All in the next month or so, no biggie, right? :)

Here's a little comparison shot of when we cut all our evil Juniper bushes down to their stumps. It's not really easy to see the difference in these pics, but I'll take some better ones once we get a little more done!
