I was an awful blogger and completely forgot to get some before pictures so here are some random pictures of our yard when we moved in so you can get a feel of what it looked like before.
The palm tree on the left is the one we had removed. The tree guy told Stephen it's bad to have trees that close because rats can get in them and then into your roof/house. As he's telling Stephen this, they cut the top off and a rat ran out!!!!!! SOOOO disgusting!!
We removed 2 pine trees for safety reasons during storms and hurricanes, 1 holly tree that was dead and looked awful, and 1 large palm tree that was planted too close to the house and was starting to mess up our roof and foundation. While we had someone out here, we got them to trim up our oak and royal poinciana tree.
Here are the after pictures (hopefully you can tell a difference lol!)
Palm tree is gone! Check out how bad our landscaping is right now... so embarrassing but I'm not touching those spider filled plants when I'm paying someone to come do it in 2 weeks lol Also note, they had to remove the other hibiscus bush that was as big as the one still there
Soo much debris...
Doing this tree work made a HUGE difference with our yard and house! I feel like we have SO much more room in the backyard, everything's open and bright and the breeze comes through the back porch better. Now that the trees are done, I can't wait to get the landscapers out to redo everything in a few weeks!!
Linking up with Annie.
