I was so happy to finally finish the cleanup of our entire yard. Our backyard was in the very worst condition and the last part to be completed. Over the long 4th of July weekend I tackled a lot of projects and that Saturday morning I focused my attention to finishing up and getting that backyard done.

I cleaned up the rest of the debris, pulled weeds and gave it a good raking. Then I started with the deck and cleaned it and our patio furniture before moving on with the hose to clean the walkway that leads to our chicken coop and raised garden beds.

I tossed out a set of broken patio tables, organized hoses, tidied up around the compost bin and cleaned up the flower bed that runs along the fence. I finished up by raking the lawn and got everything put back into its proper place.

Once my tools were put away I stood back and took it all in. Finally my yard looks the way I hoped it would. It is so nice now to look out my windows and see it neat and presentable rather than a yucky old mess. We are now able to thoroughly enjoy our deck and I plan to put it to good use. Every space has now been give a complete makeover.
I even think my chickens are impressed.
