Here are some before, during and after shots of the landscaping. We did a simple design for the front, and are planning on adding another layer or two of the brick to finish it off. We just did one layer so we could put the initial mulch down and that is all that would fit in my truck.

Everything seems to be growing pretty good, the grass has some bare spots and I’ll address those in the spring. Hopefully some of those weeds will go away with the next weed and feed session. Next up is to do a fence along the side and back (behind the new arborvitaes we planted). Waiting for that tax refund!

Well,  this isn’t a normal “house update”.  The house was updated, but with a few thousand pound branch that crushed my truck, scratched Chrissy’s car, and took off my brand new gutters.  Below are some pictures, it happened at about 10:45pm (about an hour and 1/2 ago) on 3/8/2008.  I reported 3 claims (yes three) to Allstate.  They made me do one claim per car, then one for the house.  I’ve herd some horror stories in the past with claims of this nature with Allstate, lets just hope they handle everything correctly.

I do have a question for everyone, this was a branch from my neighbors tree.  What do I do? Who’s responsible for the tree cleanup and all of the other expenses?

Yes, the tree is IN my car!

Roof is crushed in, windows smashed, quarter panel is smashed….

Wifes car has a lot of scratches and missing a side mirror now…

Thats one big branch!
