With all these 'plans' I have in my head I forget that my hubby probably can't visualize the things like I can. That's when I turn to the computer. That's when my vision is morphed into an exact image of what I want. That's when I hand it to him and say "Let's get to work." HA! I'm sure he really appreciates all my ideas...it means more work for him! But, really we have made a pretty good team making things come together.
When we bought the house, the vines had taken over the full length of the fence. While I loved the greenery (and beautiful red color in the fall) they simply became too heavy for the rotting fence underneath. So, step one began with lots and lots of cleaning and clearing away vines. This portion of the yard was also covered in fern growth and weeds so we tried to kill them off as best we could and rototilled a few times to clear the area. We also made a garden area in the process.

Hello new fence!
This is a photo of my aunt's yard. I fell in love with her landscaping!! That is exactly what I want! So, I combined this with some of the other ideas I had.
This is my first idea ((virtual impression)) using pea-rock as the base
