Feminine Improvements in the Yard...

Though I hung a wreath on the front door and tied flag bunting to the porch railing the day we moved in, our yard needed some serious work! Husband got right down to business and mowed the lawn, weed-whacked, and set up the sprinkler to try to revive the yellowed grass today. Normally, we are against watering lawn (especially since the house doesn't belong to us and the owners aren't interested in paying for the H2O), but our neighbors have been complaining a bit about the owners lack of dedication to their yard. We're hoping that a bit of water this week will appease the masses and revive things a bit. I hope they don't get too excited though, because I have a feeling that we'll be coiling up the hose in a few days and letting Mother Nature do the rest!

How have you improved your curb appeal lately?

Ugh...our yard is a mess right now. I dearly wish I could mow during the day, but it just isn't practical with a little one! (I suppose I could use the push mower, but I'm so afraid of damaging his hearing!) The yard looked so pretty for the birthday party and now it's all scraggly. The gardens look all right, but the lawn is out of control! We had a real dry patch, so we didn't mow and then we had a solid week of rain so you can imagine the results! I don't want to be a nagging wife, but I'm trying to "nudge" DH into mowing one night this week! The whole house looks terrible when the yard isn't neat.
