Sometimes you just need a rake...

Yesterday (Saturday) I decided to go out and get a rake to start fixing up my apartment's backyard. The backyard looked like it hadn't been taken care of for over a year. There was definately potential. Lets see what happenned. I apologize for the darkness of the pictures, but when you rake at 7:00 P.M. that is bound to happen.

The backyard before. Note the leaves from last fall and probably the fall before that one. I have yet to do this section, maybe I might get to it today. But as for the rest, check out the difference!

The area around the BBQ (far right in this picture) before the royal clean-up.

The area around the BBQ after. My new rake is also visible.

The deck afterward.

All in all, not a bad evening for a little yardwork. Hopefully in the future some BBQ's will happen back here. At least the fire hazard of the all the leaves has been taken care of though!

One bag of rubbish down at least one more to go!

Today I finished up raking the backyard. Here are the rest of the "after" pictures. The backyared doesn't to shabby. The only downfall is the sound of a hundred snails screaming that there are no more leaves to hide under. Well, you can't please everyone.

On another note, Pete, who lives upstairs asked "how's the gardening going?" I said not bad and I hope to finish it up this afternoon. He asked if we were going to plant flowers, I replied that probably not since we were probably going to move out sometime this summer. But at least we will have a nice backyard to BBQ in. That and at least the weeds will now be able to grow better. Every backyard needs a little greenery.
