Landscaping is Finished

I realize that this probably doesn't look much to those of you in more temperate climes, but this is great landscaping for New Mexico. The back yard was becoming totally overgrown with various desert plants and looking like wild scrub land. The crew spent most of its time and effort in back, and this picture shows just a little portion of what they did.

The front yard didn't need as much work, but also looks considerably better than it did just a few days ago. The plants were thinned out and the remaining ones were trimmed. Still at lot of plants, but you can now tell what they are.

We will celebrate this weekend by grilling and dining in the new back yard, a much more pleasant place to be!

Oh it looks beautiful! I lived in Nevada during my 20's and reminds me of how beautiful the desert is.

I think it's beautiful as well. And I'm guessing you don't have poison ivy issues... K

Robin, the desert has a different type of beauty, doesn't it? It's very stark but with a wonderful quality of light.

K, no poison ivy issues, but desert plants bring their own hazards, like spines and thorns!!
