We have been working A LOT in our garden lately... It must be a part of our nesting process. Over the weekend, we were wondering if we had any old photos we took when we purchased our property and my jaw dropped when I actually found those photos.
It's absolutely crazy to see them side by side... and how little I actually remember what it looked like three years ago.
An elderly lady who previously owned this house really left both inside and outside of the house untouched (which was what we liked about the house... since we saw so many houses with not-so-good remodeling results) so our backyard was literally a blank canvas.
The most amazing thing is that 98% of work has been all done single handedly by Frido including removing massive amount of asphalt, taking metal poles out (which used to be light poles for badminton court or some sort), replacing grass to mulch, removing a strange white structure, planting all the new trees, creating a vegetable garden, building our patio (happened over the last holidays) and most recently constructing a pergola over one weekend...
I mean... he is one capable person, right?
He really had a big vision to turn this backyard into a special garden and I so admire his focus on making it happen...
I love that this special garden is truly ours and it now has so much life within it.
p.s. more photos of some fun garden details to come soon:)
