The Project Continues... Successfully!

Our privacy screen project continued this past weekend!
With much success!
To see more 'before' pictures,
Project Step 1: Buy Materials, and
Project Step 2: Remove Remaining Tree Stumps
Our weekend was extremely busy, so I didn't get to take a picture of every step!
Project Step 3: Buy More Materials
Casey bought posts Friday and unloaded them Saturday.
He bought concrete on Saturday so the humidity wouldn't have time to mess it up!
Project Step 4: Dig Holes for Posts
Casey digging holes at lightning speed! 
Before the sun went down Friday!
Project Step 5: Build the Privacy Screen!
I can't believe I have no pictures of Casey and my wonderful Daddy
putting this perfectly staight fencing up! 
They did such a good job and in good spirits!
They worked hard and fast (despite the mosquitos)
and had this up within a few hours!
All while listening to Gamecock football on the radio :)
Project Step 6: Finishing Touches
Sunday after church the men put up a few
connecting boards between the fencing pieces
while I made lunch!
Project Step 7: Buy Plants for Landscaping
Casey and I went shopping Sunday evening for plants to put along the fence.
We planted a medium-sized Emerald Green Arborvitae
(evergreen like Leyland Cypress) at the front end of the fence
to hide the gap between the wood and metal fences. 
We decided to keep it simple the rest of the way....
1 Butterfly-like bush area,
3 Small Emerald Green Arborvitaes
and 3 Knockout Roses.
We will alternate the trees and roses and add tons of pinestraw.
Plants out in front of the fence.
To Be Continued.....
Project Step 8: Plant Plants and Put Out Pinestraw
Ready for planting!
Oh, and our realtor is e-mailing pictures to all of the agents who have shown our house before just in case they may still be interested.  I hope we can get some more good pictures while the roses are still in bloom!
Extra Special Thanks to my Mom and Dad for everything they did for us this weekend!
We couldn't have done it without them!
The nieghbor's yard has continually brought us negative feedback...
Please pray that this privacy screen makes a difference!
