Backyard Makeover

1 material
I had some questionable bushes boardering my backyard. They kept my 9lb dog in, but the neighborhood dogs easily found their way through the bushes.
I removed the bushes including the roots.
The bushes were dead inside and a leaf trap.
There were a total of 10 shrubs each over 6 feet tall.
Cleaned up the ground and leveled it out
I leveled up the foundation for our fence.
Adding the posts was difficult because our property is very rocky and our posts were 4 feet deep.
Once posts were set, we were ready for some rails. We made a spacer to ensure each post measured exactly and patterned the posts.
Now we have a nice clean fence that I don't have to trim regularly.
Lastly I leveled off the grass side and planted grass to the fence line.

Suggested materials:

  • Weatherproof screws, pressure treated 4x4's, 2x2's, 2x4's and 2x6's   (The lumber yard)
