This is what our backyard looked like in February when we put an offer on the house.
Our hill is so overgrown and full of weeds. Remember the house was bank owned, so the yard has a fair amount of neglect. We are working on cleaning it up and it is enjoyable since its ours, except for when I have to clean up petrified dog poo-- the problem with a discount price. But with my husband's schedule and my allergies its not going fast. I am currently on allergy medicine, which works fine until go out to work. I get about about an hour of work before my allergies are so bad I can't function. I go in and wash my hands, arms, and face and 12 hours later, maybe get another hour in. Work is really slow, but this is a big yard, .25 acre for people who have never had a yard.
Also anyone want to donate a $100 so my children can have a swing set?
P.S. Oh my goodness, our lawn looks terrible. I thought it did then when my husband got home and mowed it he was so proud there was green. I think we need a turf builder or something. So much to buy for a house and so little money. Remind me its fun to be house poor.
