Cabin Landscaping

Tom gave us a wonderful gift this weekend!

The road at the cabin goes through the back of everyone's lots. Over time, the road has moved closer and closer to our cabins. Our neighbors are in the process of building a cabin (they had campers they pulled in each year) and in doing so, we have pulled together and straightened the road. In order to keep it straight now, we wanted to put some sort of boundary at the corners of our lot to make sure it was clear where the road was.

Tom has used his first full paycheck from work to landscape this old road area for us and he did it all on his own, from the planning to the actual doing of the project. He borrowed the tiller from Grandpa and tilled the entire area (50 feet x almost 30 feet), then spread a pick up load of black dirt on top and sodded the area. He also put in split rail fencing at each corner. I bought some lilac and forsythia bushes to go in the corners and it looks fantastic.

Jim and Chris were at a hockey tournament all weekend so he asked Jim to come out Sunday afternoon after they returned so he could show him his project.

We are so proud of him! (click on the pictures to see them bigger)
