Happy Monday and welcome to my blog! I will be blogging Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. I am starting out with the exterior of our current house. It doesn’t look like there was a lot of work done, but replacing the soil with better soil was a ton of work and sweat!!
The exterior of this home needed some work. We changed the light fixtures. We painted the garage doors. Re seeded the entire front yard. We dug up and made the flower bed much bigger. We also dug up the “bad soil” and added better soil from Make It Green in Kanata. A couple of years ago we added a maple tree. I just love all the colours in fall. The exterior stone pathway was removed. Scott removed the paving stones along with all the soil. He rented a small excavator from a local rental store. He added about eighteen inches of general aggregate, about two inches of stone dust, then compacted it. He used two fence post pipes and a four foot level to screed the stone to an appropriate slope. This is important because you want the water to flow away from the house.

I have picked out a colour for the front door called Gray Gardens by Benjamin Moore. See you all Wednesday!
