Spring Has Sprung

We are going to be adding retaining walls around the front and we will finally be adding much needed shrubs and flowers to the front yard. The backyard will be cleaned up and hopefully we can purchase some patio furniture.
I am going to be searching Craigslist.com and yard-sales for deals on the furniture.

(unfortunately those bushes we transplanted from elsewhere didn’t live once the Georgia sun started to get summer hot…so we’ll have to buy more bushes for the front.)
Soo..
