This winter has been especially brutal. It is finally giving way to spring, which means spring cleaning and landscaping.  Curb appeal is vital when potential buyers are driving by your neighborhood.  If your house is not for sale, perhaps your neighbor’s house is.

15 yards of mulch was needed to bring the landscape back into shape.  That is a lot of wheel-barrow loads.

This is the third bunch of brush clippings set aside for the spring clean-up crew to chip into mulch.



It took three week-ends to get our yard into shape.  I am confident we have done our part to enhance our neighborhood–especially since the property next door is for sale.


The next outside project on our list is to paint our front door.  Last fall, I thought I wanted a blue door, but I kept re-thinking that choice.  It finally came down to two choices:  either paint it the same color as the stain because it matches the upper cedar siding, or choose a color that coordinates with the stone.

I chose the “curry” color on the left to coordinate with the stone.  I didn’t realize how hard it is to choose a front door color!  [When the door is finished, I’ll post the “after” photo.]
