what a mess! the place next to me has been vacant for the past year or two. the guy who used to own it was evicted and now its owned by the bank, which means it is no longer taken care of. there is a fence between our lawns, so i usually dont mind- hey, it makes my terrible looking lawn look great by comparison! but one thing that had been bugging me was the overgrowth in the back yard. the bank, for some reason, decided to take down the chain link fence in the back yard, so all the crazy bushes from his yard spilled over and was growing now in my yard. now that i have a weed wacker (thanks for the birthday gift, mom and dad!), i thought it was time to take care of this out of control area. i chopped, i cut, i pulled, and now it looks much much better!
take a look for yourself at the before and after pics here!
