In the meantime, the kids are pursuing their own landscape vision. This bush on our front steps has long been the repository for bike helmets and scooters. The kids generally whiz home from school and ride their scooters right into the bush, which holds them nicely.
Remember our multi-phase initiative to greenify the backyard? Last week the sod arrived, and now things are much, much better. Future phases involve seeding remaining thin areas of lawn, planting tomatoes, replenishing mulch, and planting bushes in heretofore dark corners.
Someone got a bit frisky today and somehow landed their scooter three feet up.
Note to self: Add "trim front bushes" to Project Verdant Oasis before said bushes take over the world.
