Patio Upgrade

We’ve had some pretty gnarly weeds growing on our back patio for the last several months.  I finally had enough and tackled the beast.  We also decided to plant some flowers in the empty pond thing.  The only thing growing there before was algae, so its definitely an improvement!

Here is the before:

Huge overgrown plants, and you can see the nasty water puddle in the pond.  YUCK!

Oh man, it was seriously a problem.

Here is the after.  It only took me one morning.  Max was really cooperative and took a nice long nap.  The crazy weed to the left had to go altogether, and I filled the pond with soil.  So much better!

I can’t even express what a difference this makes.  Now when I open the blinds in the morning, I just smile because it is so pretty out there.  Hopefully we’ll have dinner out there one night soon!
