When we first moved into our old house on January 1st, 2010 we also became the proud owners of a neglected and completely wild backyard. It took us a good month to clear it all up. We tackled 11 trees, some dead and most of them dirty and bushy pines, lifeless and leaning

and plenty of pinecones and wood for all my friends,

10ft wild brush so thick and messy, dry and deeply rooted everywhere,

wild geraniums too,

and wild jade everywhere, imagine over 50 years of jade branches touching the ground and new plants taking up root, not only did we buy a house, we bought a forest of jade

and an ugly old shed too that needed to disappear. FSU!

A worker also accidently backed up into a section of the old fence so building a new fence came much sooner than planned.


and finally cleared!

Not the most recent photo but you get the idea, we’ve come a long way.
