Operation Outdoor Spruce-up: Part 1

Following in the super-huge, will-never-be-able-to-fill footsteps of these iconic DIY bloggers, Katie B and John & Sherry; I bring you the first installment of Operation Outdoor Spruce-up at our house!

Last Monday I showed you Caveboy’s new-to-us play-set, which we thought was pretty awesome. Caveman thought so too but, mentioned something about adding mulch around it soon. Well soon happened to be mid-week!

Pictures are always helpful in these transformation projects, so…here’s the before.

Before – last weekend

And now here’s the after!

After!! – this weekend!

And a different angle!

After – from atop the deck!

No messy construction photos, sorry about that; but Caveboy was attending his very first Vacation Bible School and Mommy wasn’t allowed to leave his sight during this time! Poor Caveman was left home each night to dig & dig & dig and then mulch & mulch & mulch! I am happy to report though the improvement has been enjoyed by all, even Casey our dog!

Thank you honey for such a lovely playground right in our very own backyard!!

Next up sidewalks, patios & door/lighting spruce-ups!

  1. This is on my list of things to do too–but I keep putting it at the bottom because of all the digging!! That, and we have an irregular shaped space–yours looks great!!! Maybe I’ll move it up on the list!! So glad you linked up for the Summer Fun Party!!
