I can't say the transformation is complete but it is alot closer and to a stage that I can enjoy. It took alot longer than anticipated but I am really happy with the outcome. Still have lots of planting to do and adding lighting, moving the mailbox, removing cinderblocks, replacing front door and windows..... but you get the idea! Here's more photos from the completed project.
I am sure most women wouldn't be too excited about rocks, but I have to say they make me so happy. I LOVE these rocks like many women probably love their favorite clothing items. They are exactly what I imagined and I think really add interest to the beds. The rock in the front corner will eventually get a plaque with our address attached to it.
