Planting trees

and making memories...

Continuing with the backyard makeover we planted some bushes for privacy. We got a great deal at our local nursery so we decided to get 17 bushes that (hopefully) will thrive in a partly shaded area that is our backyard. Here are some pictures of the process:

We first had to get the ground ready for planting so the husband rented a tiller to make room for the trees
We also got some really good dirt (the kids loved playing in it... of course)
Both of the kids got to pick a tree. I envision taking pictures of them as the trees grow... It will be fun to see the changes as the years go by

They also made some yard art to mark their respective trees... The key word here is documenting, documenting, documenting...

All 17 trees have been planted... The yard is looking so good already! I can't wait to see the changes as the years go by...
