Before & After Sideyard
When we bought this house it was surrounded by a lot of cement. Both sideyards were wall-to-wall cement. While we conceded that the utilities side yard might need the cement there was no reason for the other side to be suffocating under all the concrete. While we were having the new paver driveway put in we had the guys break up and remove the concrete. Then Pete Veilleux of East Bay Wilds came in with his trusty crew and installed a lovely bluestone walkway with redtwig dogwoods on either side. The trees have grown fast and are nearly arching over the entire path when they are fully leafed out.
I call it Dogwood Alley and I love it!
