More yard work

We were back at the house yesterday doing more yard work. We finished up the driveway side of the house and did about half of the back of the house.

Driveway side of house

Carport, Hedge that borders the meadow, and the barn in the background

Another shot of the hedge that separates the back yard from our meadow

Here is a before and after of the back yard area of the house:



And here is a before and after of the side of the house:


The next two areas to tackle will be the meadow:

And the barnyard:


We are thinking of making the meadow a flower and vegetable garden. I believe this is what it was originally. The entire area is fenced in with some type of very old chicken wire fencing. At the break in the boxwood hedge are two very old concrete posts that appear to have once held a gate.

Fantastic find, I'm jealous! Once the exterior gets a coat of paint the place will look great. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
