Now that the deck is finished, Nick planted some clematis around the pergola and down below. Hopefully, it'll grow up the structure and we'll have beautiful blooming flowers all summer long.
A few weeks ago, Nick also did some heavy manual labor and moved some of the bushes from the front yard to the back. Again, we're so happy with how this turned out. Our builders definitely went overboard with the plantings in the front, so we had more than enough to spare. Nick always complained about mowing the yard in the area around the air conditioning unit out back, so it made sense to mulch this area and fill it in with some bushes.
