We have spent a lot of time discussing what needs to be done and we have come up with the following list of jobs:

  1. Rip up and dispose the “lawn”
  2. Remove the top layer of soil and replace with fertile new soil
  3. Add instant turf
  4. create a zone each for the kids play area, lawn and growing produce
  5. build a garden shed which will help de-clutter our garage
  6. Replace the entire fence
  7. add some garden paths to get around the yard
  8. transform the front yard into something that is usable and aesthetically pleasing
  9. Slowly introduce greenery into the front and back yards

Its a big ‘to-do’ list so lets see what happens.

We now need to find a good landscaper that can work with us on turning the plan into reality.
