Since neither Jay nor I have the patience to deal with the maintenance of landscaping, he came up with a genius fix that still allows us to have curb appeal.
Instead of mulching and weeding, he ordered a truck-full of rocks to spread around the perennial bushes which came with the house.
He laid it all (with a bit of help from a buddy and my father) over weed barrier to help save on labor costs.
I'm pleased with how well it turned out! He had quiet a few rocks left over. Next week I hope to share pictures of the creative ways he finished up the pile.
