Here is true passion - landscaping! These photos were taken with just a normal point-and-shoot camera with no editing. I simply wanted to demonstrate my eye for landscape design and my passion for turning backyards into the ultimate escape. When we moved into our house 3 years ago there was absolutely no yard, only sand. I researched, designed, budgeted, and put in the sweat-equity to turn it into what it is today. My husband and I, along with some help from some family, did everything ourselves from shaping the landscape, putting in the sprinklers, top soil, bark, rock, sod, fence, and plants. The only thing we hired out was laying the patio cement and putting in the fence posts. Even though it is and probably always will be a continual work in progress, I am very proud of this project and hope it reflects how truly passionate I am about landscaping.
