Demo Day: Exterior Edition

My parents are coming to visit the beginning of March, and I planned on working on landscaping while they are here.  There is some prep that needed to be done, so we started it this weekend. 

Here's what it looked like before:

We took out all of the plants, weeds and all.  There must have been a ton of bark chips in the area, which we removed as well. Next came the fencing.  As you know, we removed the front fencing as soon as we moved in, but waited until spring time to get rid of this little section.  


After we took out the fence and stepped back, Nick immediately said that it looked so much bigger without the fence.  I told him the front yard will look twice its size once we finish.  

If you look closely at the bottom picture, you can see a brick wall.  It goes a couple more feet down.   I think it might have been the original flower bed from the 50s.  Wonderful surprises when working on a house.
