When we first moved in, we thought the back yard looked fine, but wanted to extend the small amount of grass.
That fall, we pulled up all of the vines that covered the entire back yard - it was unreal. We were pretty proud of ourselves, and had plans to move the monkey grass and put down seed in the spring....little did we know... Spring came and dozens of perennials grew up in our nicely cleaned out yard! You just can't imagine... we just didn't find the time to do the overhaul that year, but M cleared things a few times with the weed-wacker and ground clear spray. So when this spring came, we decided it was time to bring in some professionals...
Danny and his team did an amazing job. We took out 3 medium sized dogwoods, plus another small tree. They limbed up our large Hickory tree, plus some other dogwoods that we kept, and trimmed back the remaining azaleas and boxwood.

Then, once everything was cleared and tilled, they put down new sod and planted 2 new crape myrtles. We are planning on adding a few more bushes to the back, but couldn't even imagine how much space was actually there when it was all covered! So we will probably add some hydrangeas next spring to fill up some of the open space.
