As many of you know, we experienced a flooded basement this spring. This necessitates a change in the drainage so it doesn't happen while we're at it, we're taking apart the front walk, and redoing it. Some of you asked for progressive pictures. This part isn't so pretty...the tear down.           To save big $ for tear up, we decided to do that ourselves. I'm cleaning the bricks & stacking them in back yard. We'll use these later in the season (when we're rested up) to rejuvenate the area around "my tired gazebo".New walkway will be wider & feature a small retaining wall to keep garden from creeping into new bricks.                                                           The old retaining wall to the right of front door was leaning , so it didn't take a lot to topple it. This one won't be replaced...we're planning shrubs. Roses are presently under the window , but they've naturalized, and now that the evergreens have grown, they no longer get enough sun.

And they are beautiful, Riana.

Here we are, 3 years later, and the front entry gardens have taken well, in spite of 2 yr of drought and this soggy spring!

Can't believe it's been 5 years ;they look the best ever. (Just compare to first photos taken in 2014).
