Preparing Our Trailer's Front Yard for Spring

This is what I have done and am going to do in preparing my front yard for spring. Putting up fencing, doing landscaping and combating mud!

One of the first things we have already gotten off the list is putting up a fence. It wasn't too hard to do. We had a few extra hands to help and we got it set up in under two hours. First we measured to see how much fencing we needed. Then we headed to a few hardware stores in town and I even looked online for the best prices. We finally found a good deal and spent around $150 for all of the materials. It's a metal type fence with metal posts that go into the ground and it works really well for a trailer court. We used a gate that was recycled so all that was needed was a new latch.

The front yard is starting to look better but it still has a long ways to go! One of the biggest issues is combating the mud. Whenever it snows or rains it leaves a swamp of mud and its awful! We are going to put in some gravel where we park the cars and maybe some decorative rock somewhere in the yard. I go out and look at the dirt and the mess and try to get a vision of what I want done out there and I even take some time and draw up ideas of what I would like to see get done.

One of the next things that we are going to do is put in some grass and a lot of flowers. I found a guy who will come in and do some tilling to get the ground ready for the grass seed and the flower beds ready to plant. This is a good time of year to get the flowers and grass planted since we have been getting a lot of moister already. I want a patio area and already have a nice wooden swing, lawn chairs, and a barbecue that will go perfect for it. So after the grass is planted I need to get some more stones to put down for the patio area. It's going to be a lot of hard work but I'm excited to see how it's going to turn out!
