This is what my yard looked like when I first moved into my new place.
We moved into a house. I can not say that the people who lived here before us took good care of the place. The yard was a mess. My lawnmower died and could not be replaced before we moved. I still do not have one and I really do not a place for a lawnmower if I get one. Our backyard was so overgrown that it would have killed a lawnmower, anyway.
It took me a whole month to clean the yard and pull all weeds out of the ground. There was poison ivy everywhere. It has even grown in the walls house itself. I did it all by hand. I did my best to get rid of as much of it as I could. For now, the place looks a lot better than it did when we moved in. It still needs a lot of work. It will take a lot of time and money to get the place, the way I want it.
This is my yard now. I pulled all the weeds by hand, myself.
One lesson that I have learned from all of this, is that everything can’t get done at once. It will take time. I have to give myself the time to get things done. I love the house. It’s the perfect place for my family. And, I get a strong feeling that we were meant to be here. By moving here, we have changed things for the better. It will take time to see results, that’s all.
