Taming The Wild

This backyard was so wild we didn't think it could be tamed. This plot of land was overrun by weeds, mosquitoes and garbage. We could only work in it 15 minutes at a time because that’s how long it took for the mosquitoes to attack me after the OFF spray dissipated.

We excavated a train, a large bone, ceramic and vinyl tiles, pipes, you name it. Working on this yard was so hard it took a year. It had to be done in steps.
First Step: involved cleaning, weed and garbage removal.
Second Step: we leveled the ground. That took about 4 hours.
Third Step: we did more leveling after the dirt settled from step 2.
Fourth Step: we mulched and planted
