a cleaner look

the old iron posts are finally being removed today. it wrecked any chance of curb appeal these last few years and i finally had enough! come to find out, it's surprisingly very easy (and affordable) to replace them with simple posts. why didn't i do this sooner? 



 
we thought about ordering the pre-made columns from home depot, until i realized the depth of those would be too tight in spots for a walk through.  so we decided on 4x6 pressure treated wood posts instead. 

it took them less than 3 hours this morning to remove the iron and replace them with a more simple look.  tomorrow they'll be back to add bases and paint.  what a difference already!


landscaping is also on the agenda.  if only it would cool off a bit ...
