Between our house and next doors is this. Although we have a gate on this side as well, we tend to use the other side to get into the back garden.
Not sure what the folk before us were trying to achieve, as there were no clear edges and it was full of weeds.
There were a number of hostas and some other plants, which we dug up and transplanted into other parts of the garden.
The weeds are just crazy in all the gardens and the grass.
They left a composter, I need to sort that out as well. The window to the left of the photo is the spare bedroom window.
We have full basements in Canada and ours is fully finished. The window here is for our laundry room.
This is the after photo. The sod is looking worse for the wear.
I top dressed it with soil and grass seed, so as long as we keep it watered, it should be lovely and green in a couple of weeks. Already it looks a hundred times better.
We had to take a trip to the dump. It was hazardous waste drop off as well as it being a bank holiday/long weekend, we knew it would be busy.
When we got there we were at the 30 minute wait time, but in no time we were at the 15 minute time. See the truck in front of us?
We were soon at the entrance. Again see the truck......sort of figured that truck was going to be dumped, as it was a rust bucket. Saw it on the way out in front of us, so it must be road worthy.........didn't look like it though.
We had 110 lbs of yard waste from digging up the side of the house, and it cost us nothing to dump it. All in all a productive day. Today will be as busy for us with more jobs being done outside in the garden.
