It was mid-February and I started making my list.
No, it’s not the naughty or nice list like a couple of months ago.
This one will take more time to plan and execute.
I want the best damn yard in my neighborhood. And it’s not going to happen by wishing and hoping.
Fortunately, I have lived in the same house for almost thirty years.
Step one, I went to my Ace Hardware and bought the Farmer’s Almanac.
Step two, I took out last year’s plan.
Step three, this year’s adjustments. The thirty miniature boxwoods that I transplanted a couple of years ago have gotten a disease. They will need to go. So, I asked the boss, aka my wife, what she wants instead.
Step four, I took out the calendar and plotted out each step. With looks of both excitement and trepidation at such an ambitious undertaking ahead, I marked up the calendar completing each task leading all the way up through delivery of three hundred bags of mulch, fertilizer, and other got-to-haves.
When I first moved to my house, my success was hit and miss.
Now, after thirty years here, I have the blueprint.
The only change is giving my older body some extra time to do the work.
Building a great yard or building a great business takes a blueprint.
