Backyard re-do

It's been a busy summer.  I've been doing my best to get out into the yard and re-vamp it.  Right now my biggest battle is the weeds in the lawn which seem to live through every form of weed killer I have applied.  The fence was finished about three weeks ago.  It wasn't my dream fence but with the impending new roof happening in a few weeks, money was scarce.  I am happy with the end result of the fence though.  I had two new gates installed and kept the lines of the fence as plain as possible.

In the spring I headed to the back forty where my large pine/spruce trees are and made a meandering pathway from the back shed to the compost box.  I have to say it has a magical quality to it.  I'll post pictures of that soon.

I am hoping to build some planter boxes for my vegetable garden this fall so the garden will look better next year and it will be easier to plant and keep weeded.

Here are a few pictures of the yard so far....
