When we moved in the yard was really overgrown. Just look at the Google Street View shot!

What a difference from how it looks today!
Chris bought a small chainsaw and took care of most of the bushes and small trees in the yard, but we decided to get a pro to take down the big pine. We hired Yukon Tree Services and they were amazing. The tree was down and everything was cleaned up in less than 30 minutes! They even chipped and carted off the big pile of brush that Chris had previously cut down.
We're still a long way from a nicely landscaped yard but it's already so much brighter and feels so much bigger. The next steps will be re-leveling the yard so it slopes away from the house and then planting grass. I also want to add some flowerbeds, but that will come a little later.
