Matting and First Pool

The pine trees were cut down. There was tree debris everywhere.

Garden First Pool

Our first above ground pool was ready.

Pine Trees 2015

Garden Trees

When we bought the property, there were five huge pine trees in the garden. They made the garden very dark. They also droped toxic needles that prevented other plants from growing. The trees were also home to a lot of very noisy cicadas.

Garden Trees Going

We got people in to cut down the trees. Sometimes we couldn't watch. One guy climbed a tree with a running chainsaw hanging from his belt.

Garden Trees Gone

The trees were all cut down and the larger pieces taken away. We still had a lot of clearing up to do. Still, the garden was much lighter.
