#50: Take Care of the Backyard Dirt Pile

This is part of our 100 Things in 2014 challenge. Here’s the full list.

Ever since we had the giant holly tree removed from our backyard almost three years ago, we’ve had a giant pile of dirt just sitting there, getting muddier and weedier, and generally being an albatross. As of right now, it is no more:

It may not seem like a big thing, but this was seriously impeding our usage of the backyard, and just made it seem janky and dumpy. This is a huge improvement. All the weeds and about half the dirt are gone, and a layer of mulch has been laid down, so it’s ready for new intentional plantings in the spring!

Apologies for not having a “before” picture. We could have sworn we had one, but it turns out you don’t just have photos of the ugly bits of your backyard sitting around.
