My mom would do all flower planting, but lawn cutting, raking, edging, mulching, etc was taken care of by a very talented team of sun kissed men.
That being said when I moved into my house just over a year ago I didn't have much of a knowledge base of what I needed to do to take care of my little city backyard.
Like, I had to cut grass? On my own?
Hiring someone wasn't an option as my backyard is totally enclosed and no one can get to it without going through my house, so I purchased a push lawnmower, a rake, and an edger/trimmer thingy.
I am woman here me roar.
9 times out of 10 I live by the above statement, if a man can do it I can do it - but after a summer of failing miserably at taking care of my lawn and hating every minute of attempting to cut it I'm admitting that lawn care is NOT my thing.
My backyard after not cutting the grass for about six weeks this fall... I told you I didn't like to cut the grass. It's not much, but it's a pain, I promise you.
So after successfully ruining all my grass due to not cutting it for so long my Mom gave me a great idea while we were cleaning up my yard yesterday in preparation for this upcoming winter - STONE PAVERS.
Who needs grass when you can just have nice pretty stone everywhere? Spring project anyone?
That being said I need to not get ahead of myself here, I need to be thankful that I finally did a whole bunch of things yesterday that no one tells you about when you buy a house, aka cleaning garages, cutting down bushes, organizing closets, covering patio furniture, putting shit away, digging up plants, etc.
I'm happy I can call my house officially winterized! Now if only someone would agree to fix my poorly installed windows....
Happy Tuesday, kids!
