Home projects thread...

Well, it's getting closer to my starting of doing several home projects. One of which I have now started. First, I have a stump in the front yard that I thought would be cool as a flower bed. Well, after about an hour of drilling and chiseling, I thought, I'm not going to be able to chisel out the entire stump,lol. So I decided to do several smaller holes, each about 8-10 inches wide, and about 8-10 inches deep. I'm also putting drain holes in the bottom so the water doesn't drown the roots. After putting in the holes and the drains, I put some crushed rock in to help keep the drain holes from getting plugged by dirt. Then I put in some potting soil, then I took some potted plants and placed them in the hole, and used more potting soil around the edges to fill it in. Worked out pretty well so far. I did 3, and got 2 more to do. I think I'm going to Lowe's and getting a larger corkscrew bit, the 1/2" bit I have does awsome, just not quite big enough..

The other 2 projects are fixing my 2 fences, as well as putting in a retaining wall to keep my neighbors driveway from eroding into my yard, as well as his fence, lol. And with that project, you will see the pics of the cactus I have to move, lol. Will be interesting.

Well, here's some pics.....

First, the tree stump project...










Here's where the retaining wall will go. Pics of the cactus I will have to move...












Now here's a couple pics of the bamboo bush I have in the front yard. Each year I cut it down to the ground, and each year, it comes up bigger and fuller. I love it. Also, this is the fence that I will be cutting down to a 4ft fence. It's the front yard fence, and it's just over 6 feet, lol. Was that way when I bought the house.
