So..

4 trips to walmart, three times to Lowes
49 plants including one 200 lb tree
7 bags of cypress mulch
4 bags of top soil
5 bags of organic compost
9 bags of rock
7 scalloped brick edging
1 gas grill vinyl coverlet
4 new sprinkler heads
2- 10ft PVC pipes, T pipe, putty, pvc glue
2 shovels
1 rake
4 wheel barrels full of dirt
1 pint of osmocote
1 rubbermaid garden hose carousel
47 or so empty black plant containers
1 severe back of the neck sunburn
2 loads of the dirtiest laundry/shoes you've ever seen
1 steam cleaning of the white carpet/tile in the kitchen
1 borrowed chain saw
1 borrowed wheel barrel

I wish I could say I knew what we were getting into, I didn't. Bighead says he knew how much work it'd be, maybe it's just cause I'm a carpet and airconditioning girl, who knows. It's over now, for the most part. We still need to go to the dump and haul off all the dead shrubs/Juniper -- and replant the lariope in the back yard-- god.. the back yard.. did I saw that was next? Jeez.

As far as the budget for the project -- it really wasn't all that costly, the plants were the major expense, I wish I'd have bought the more heavy duty shovel from the beginning, but ah well.

I should wash the exterior of the windows to put the finishing touches on it all.. but I don't really forsee doing much of anything today except making dinner.

Jamie Oliver is fucking annoying. That is all.

oh, I'm totally never doin anything like this ever again and don't suggest it to anyone else either. in fact, i'd say, if you have the means to pay someone, do it. we should have, without a doubt.
