The day has finally arrived: The project walkway is done and the result looks better then I could have imagined!
Remember the old path?
And the former front door and shutters?
I planned ahead and made sketches: I designed the layout, the columns, the colors, hardware and landscape. As you can imagine a lot of work went into details! Surprisingly there was little what had to be adjusted as we worked along.
And here is what it looks now!
The grass will be sprouting in a few days and with tender loving care grow strong and beautiful!
It looks so fresh! Gardens in May are so splendid!
The mail box will be hung Friday and so will the house number!
Earlier yesterday the landscaping crew re- did our lawn and
planted some greenery we had selected previously.
These two bushes survived the demolition and were successfully transplanted.
One more shot at night:
We are very happy with it all! Hurrah for a new house front and walkway!
This morning it's raining and I have never welcomed rain more then today: The grass seeds need water!!!
A big thank you to the crews who worked hard to make it so beautiful: The stone masons, the painters, other contractors and the landscape guys.
