Our new landscaper guy (who's name is David, no wonder he's good) was back on Saturday with truckloads of mulch. The difference is amazing.
Brett and I have made repeated trips to multiple nurseries for more boxwoods, holly, and some variegated euonymus for the west end of the house. We also planned to snag an Atlas blue cedar at Sutherland's 50% off plant sale this morning but literally missed it by a few minutes. I resisted giving the side eye to the man and woman who had it on their cart.
Its hotter than hell today but we're heading out now to continue searching for some big pots for the porch. As we've been concentrating on trees and shrubs we're both feeling the need for some potted flowers. Resto REALLY needs to mark those zinc planters down hard at the end of the summer.
