We've done a lot of work on our little house in the past two years. Now it's time to beautify the front a bit. We poured a new driveway last summer. The new driveway is level with the sidewalk. It seems that over the years our front lawn had built up into a little hill. So now, when you step out of the car on the driveway, there is this ledge of dirt/lawn beside it. This will become a river of mud during the rainy season.
I've always been bothered that the driveway was the walkway to the front door. Larry and I decided that a dedicated walkway, exclusively leading to the front door would be better. We're finally laying a walkway level and next to the driveway, with a few more steps up to the existing front stairs. Eventually, I'd like to add some guide lights along the walkway and maybe some decorative plants too. Home improvements are ongoing.Next up: Paint that peeling window trim!!!
