Thanks all for the info on the blinds. So 1" it is... They're not quite as cheap here, but DD got one in NJ in her neighborhood for 2.97.
Kathy, how long have you been working on this project? 5 acres is massive! I've seen pics of areas that look very established, you must have been at it for a while.
My main area is 2 or 3 acres, but the main landscaping is very established, and in some areas, very old. My challenge has been to clean it up and renew it after a long period of decline. Of course I want to add more variety and express my creativity as well, lol.
Pics 1-3 are from 2008. I was already busy with the Roundup.
Pic 4 is 2011, the section which was almost solid ferns, except for goldenrod, raspberries and whatever else could squeeze itself in there.
Pic 5 is last summer. The shrubs that had the bittersweet in them are halfway down on the right. This level is getting better, but still three levels more with lots left to work on...
