Reclaiming the Jungle

Before we bought our house it was vacant for 2 years.  This means that the yard was a serious jungle when we moved in.  We struggled through the summer with small projects here and there, but turns out, summer in Texas isn't actually a great time to attempt yardwork.  Since we just cleaned out the houseboat, we figured why stop there?  Why not overhaul the back yard while we were at it?  You may remember our savage back yard.

Would you believe me if I told you these photos were actually taken before the jungle took over the entire back yard?  We spent a couple of days one weekend this February and extended the patio and planted our first plants!






Now our houseboat (ahem, partyboat) is a real backyard hangout!
