Front Yard

Front Yard with the willow trimmed up what I could reach by crawling up the center trunks. 

Not too long after that trim, I cut down the willow so that the pines underneith could grow. IMO, pines are better and their roots not as destructive as the fast growing willow tree weed. 

Put in edging and some plants along the fence.

The next 2 pictures show 10 years of growth from a similar angle of view. 

The willow tree early year picture (96 or 97?). The little charlie brown pine tree looked pretty sad back then.
