And so it begins...

the continuation of our yard remodel. The first stage was removing the 7 pine trees back in June (as seen here). 

Now we are starting stage 2:  the removal of our old driveway, the pouring of a new one (on the other side of the house), new walkway around the house, new landscaping, and more. Of course the weather, which has been unseasonably warm this month has decided to get crappy all of a sudden. With all the rain, our yard is now one big mud-pit ... wrestling anyone? Needless to say, Bentley is lovin' it all, and I'm just praying I survive the next 3-4 weeks.

Here are the pics from mid-day Friday (Day 1):

the beginnings of our new driveway entrance.

this is where the new driveway will be (runs the whole way back to the basketball court).

view from the basketball court to the street.

the west walkway in the back (used to be solid weeds and about 1 foot high). This will be all concrete sidewalk - probably my fave part of the project as I wasted so much time trying to keep this weeded over the summer. 

Just some of the ivy, weeds, and debris from the south side of the house.

just another view of the south side of the house.

view of the back of the house & irrigation ditch where the new wraparound sidewalk/walkway is going.

Hey! I just wanted to comment about the lockers you asked me about. I think only two or three sections were being held. They seriously had like thirty. It was $42 per section, and a section consisted of two lockers. So in the first picture there are 14 sections. Let me know if you have any more questions!
