We are gearing up for putting our house on the market January 1st.  There’s still lots to do before it’s ready but the good news is our work schedule is slowing down for the Christmas break so we both can work on the remaining items.

We had black lava rock in our flower beds on the front side of the house and for a long time it looked great.  However, over the years the bush and hedge trimmings that fell into the rock looked a little messy.  We placed an ad on Craig’s List for free lava rock and people came and raked and loaded it up!  People love free stuff.  Next we shopped around for mulch and found a lumber yard not too far away and got 4 cubic yards of mulch for a very good price, looks much better now.
