I’m not a landscaper. The last time I did any significant landscaping was when I worked on the grounds crew at my high school for a summer, nearly thirty years ago.
Nonetheless, my family and I have been working on transforming the small front yard of our home. It’s going slowly, but I can say this much: we have a small pavestone sidewalk in place. It still needs a little leveling before I lift the stones temporarily to put anti-weed fabric down, but it’s usable now.
I get a silly joy out of walking the length of that little sidewalk.
