Thanks Baneare! I am having fun with it! Wednesday 7/2
: Just a trim.
So I got out early while it was still cool and breezy and just did some more
Some before and after pictures:
Bush in the front of my house before:
After (it doesn't look like much in the picture but it certainly is more groomed):
(Kind of looks like a heart from this angle. lol)
Middle of the back fence before:
Phew! That was a lot of looping and cutting and cursing. (Most of what I took down were vines that were intertwined through the fence over and over.)
Here is one of my next projects (after tackling the rest of the ivy on the fence):
My shed is a little house.
It is in pretty poor shape, both inside and out. I plan to scrub it and paint all the wood the same color as my house (which is a light mocha color) and then paint the trim around the windows and doors the same color as my shutters (a dark burgundy.)
But it is covered with ivy and is pretty dirty. So I first have to figure out how to clean/prep it with killing myself and without destroying any of the wood.
First step to help control the ivy is I have been taking some of the bricks I have found around my property (There are just random bricks and hunks of stone EVERYWHERE!
) and am lining the base the shed with them to help keep the ivy from coming up from below.
(You can see where I have started on the left and the gap that still needs more bricks on the right.)
It was a productive morning. :) More cutting and brick laying tomorrow!
