Landscaping at the Verona House

Landscaping at the Verona House

As with every spring, there was a lot of yard work to do at the Verona house to get it ready for spring and summer. I had to replant grass seed in certain areas, replant annual flowers, plant bushes and arbor vida, fertilize the yard, mow, put bark in the planters, and prune the trees. I started out with a trip to the Home Depot that completely filled the Super Duty and let me take advantage of its hauling capabilities…

I got to work, and was able to use the Ranger, which I had recently tuned up, to haul bark and bushes to where they needed to go.

All of the areas that needed bark looked great after it was added:

All the shrubs and arbor vida were planted:

The planters on the front porch looked great with orange and yellow begonias and decorative grass:

And after fertilizing, reseeding, and mowing, the lawn looked great too, as did all of the paths and walkways around the land after pruning was completed. After a busy weekend of work, everything was done!
