Today was probably a great day for our neighbors - we managed to work a little bit (4 hours!!!) on the front yard, including weeding, trimming and ripping out some plants/bushes. Our yard was the worst within a couple of blocks around us, now it moved up a rank or two. It is not the way we want it yet but we are still looking for inspiration for what to do with the front yard. Don't want to start planting until we have a plan.
