I think I mentioned awhile back that we would have some landscaping projects to tackle in the near future. Well, that would be because of this...
You can see where our fence was in relationship to the garden (which we just expanded with two more boxes up front).
Just outside the fence (left side) we had to take down around 12 or so Leland Cypress trees that had succumbed to disease. When we moved our fence to where it is in this picture the trees were already there, so we fenced inside of the tree line not on our property line. Since they are now gone we decided to move our fence to just inside our property line (meeting up with an existing post at the top where our neighbor had tied in for privacy with our permission) and because they had planted a tree that was right on the line. It is a pretty tree and healthy, so why have them take it down.
You can see the new section of fence being constructed quite a bit out from the existing. It widens at the top.
A lot more yard! If you look back at the before you can see how close the fence was in relation to the pear trees and the garden. My brother, who is a landscaper, needs to come out and regrade the hill and then we will plant. We have already purchased a couple cedars and a few fruit trees for the space.
I know our dogs will be in heaven, especially our Cairn terrier who loves to run. Our 13 year old Golden may never get up to the top of the hill these days! Bless his heart, bad hips.
