Backyard Transformation

A month ago we went to my nieces to help
her with her yard.
I blogged abt it here
in the back the trees had been 
attacked by the Emerald Ash Borer
so they had to be removed
This weekend we put in 
4 Japanese Maples
and a Magnolia
Also added a bunch of annuals
The side of the house walking to the back

To the left we pulled out roses and put them in the front 
and added begonias
along the wall are daisies

More daylilies will be added to this area

Learning how to trim out the bushes

Isn't my niece adorable


  1. Looks really good Jo. So when are you coming to help me with my yard??? :)

  2. I am glad you took a tea break after all that gardening. It looks like a beautiful yard and your cute niece is very fortunate that she has a wonderful aunt.

    Hope to see you at the next tea.
    Have a great week. Pam

  3. It's looking great! Such a beautiful back yard; I bet the front looks just as great!


  4. Hey Jo, You guys all worked so hard to get that yard looking fantastic! I pulled out 6 big barberries on Sunday afternoon. What a pain! The landscaper wanted $700 to remove 14 bushes and a small tree. My neighbor and I took down the tree and then I did the barberries. How much money do ya think I saved by doing that? LOL
    E-mail me your phone number again, ok? It was in my cell, but since it went through the wash this morning, it is now DEAD!! :(
    hugs, Sue

  5. Absolutely stunning. I love your hedges!


  6. What a nice thing to do! I'm sure she appreciated the help. Gorgeous yard.

  7. great job on thelandscapeing & that spuce tree is absolutly beautiful!

  8. The landscaping is looking good. Aren't Japanese Maples the best?

    Would love to have you join my Garden Party if you get a chance!

    Have a blessed weekend!

  9. Your hard work paid off! It looks amazing! Nice work!

  10. I LOVE your hedges. What are they, and are they hard to maintain? I am in Zone 5, central Iowa.
