5 Years ~ Before & After in Our Fairfield Garden
For me, the most rewarding changes have been accomplished in the landscape. My best friend teased the daylights out of me when we bought a house with "tortured shrubbery" (clipped into box and spiral shapes). But it was a half acre after a tiny lot and, even though two-thirds of it was covered in ivy and pachysandra, I knew there was a wonderful garden waiting to happen. And, there was a garden shed and an extra garage on the back of the house to store all my garden tools, pots and whatnot!

Thanks, Mrs.K! Yes, that ivy fought back - I mowed, dug and smothered it with wood chips! It still tries to come back but I have stayed on top of it.

still fighting ivy. I would never put it anywhere. It still keeps trying to come back from the neighbors, who let it go. The vines can get like little tree trunks.
