It’s been three and a half years in the making – but we are finally about to start landscaping our backyard. Sweet Jesus, I’m ready for this. We spent this weekend visiting the nursery (if you haven’t been to Jackrabbit Nursery, you’re missing out) and trying to decide what kind of trees and plants we want. For the trees, we’re going to add three. I’m pretty sure we’ve decided on two Shamel Ash trees and one Purple Leaf Plum tree. We have a Shamel Ash in our front yard and I love it because 1) It’s an Evergreen, and 2) It grows SO FAST. It’s easily grown 10ft in the past three and a half years. The shade they give will be great in the backyard. I’m so excited to keep you guys posted about the progress and to show you the finished results! It’s going to be great not having a dusty dirt filled yard anymore. Desert living problems.
