Udating my yard

I added the brick path around this side of the yard a few weeks ago (shared that before and after here). Subscribe to the Simply Organized newsletter and I'll deliver a wrap-up of what's happening on the blog. You'll also receive my custom weekly school and activity planner printable!

But the fresh backyard sod cuddled up against the new brick path makes my heart skip a beat.

Average return at resale: 102 percent It costs about ,500 to replace the tub, tile surround, floor, toilet, sink, vanity and fixtures.

You’ll get back an average of ,700 at resale, a recoup rate of 102 percent.

I’m slowly working my way counter-clockwise around the house until all of the ground/dirt is covered.

Lots of options, but I ended up with a beautiful natural stone in a color called Kandla Grey. I purchased 24 24 x 24 stones and 48 12 x 24 stones to create a pretty pattern on the walkway. But this really is so pretty and exactly what I was hoping the outcome would look like!

More front yard progress to share – Half of the front path is complete! Hard to believe how far I’ve come out here in the front. And I’m down to the details like wrapping up this path and adding a few hedges, plants and flowers. So, that will get worked on this weekend and hopefully the remaining path will be in place so I can share that end result next week.

With the help of my gardener, it took just 4-5 hours to set this first path…from the driveway to the front door… Turns out we have a drainage issue from the new front lawn sprinklers.

A brightly colored living room might be your cup of tea, but a neutral clean palette is much more palatable for most buyers.

Designer Emily Henderson recommends these timeless shades for almost any space.
