Our friend Milo, the goofy black lab loves our backyard. Unfortunately with the snow sticking around longer in shady spots of our yard, it's officially mud season back there. Muddy paws make me cringe and quite frankly tired. Off the back of our house we have a garage door and french doors. I decided to build Milo his own potty aka dog run. The other day when it was 50 degrees, I headed out back, tore down the wire fencing I had on my planting bed and made better use of it. See my work below!
Luckily for us, our 75lb big dog doesn't realize he can literally just step over the fence. Yes, those are leaves, still on the ground in ummm...March. They help manage the doggie waste much easier than just on the rocks that sit on that awful looking side yard. With the looming prospect of putting our house on the market preparing the backyard just scares me. I prefer the fun landscaping, gardening and planting flowers. Unfortunately my husband is not that obsessive yard guy, so we are both in for some work before the for sale sign goes up!
So you heard it here first, Goodbye mud season! I won't miss you.
