After building our house 6 years ago we had a blank slate to start landscaping. I had several challenges ahead of me, one being no budget for a landscaper, poor clay soil and a back woods inundated with poison ivy and briars, basically an impenetrable jungle, a slope with washouts and gullies. Tackling one job at a time and finishing it before moving onto the next kept me focused. It's ever evolving but it's come along way from being a muddy mess to my little piece of heaven on earth. Hope you enjoy.
