Amazing even comes with a lake. At one point, I thought the trees were standing in a pond, so poor is my eyesight. You probably need a lot of water loving plants, astilbes, hydrangeas and hosta and even the lovely iris sibirica. The yard must be teeming with wildlife as there is quite a bit of boggy and soggy area. You've done well, @DrCase !

Hope his house is on a much elevated footing because there seems to be so much water around. Hope you son finds happiness and content in his forever home!

Wow.
I'm really liking the Cypress.

Thanks Sqwib
It’s got the old river look

I see no small dogs in any of the pictures. Any alligators spotted?:D Great job. My back is starting to ache after seeing all the work you have done.

Lol
A little to cold for alligators
When you walk the water edge it’s a long way
The work scared a lot of potential buyers

Thanks chuck

Thanks guys

Most the hard work is done now I can just enjoy keeping the lake bank clean.
Spray a little and plant stuff

Every thing on the other side of the water is a golf course , that makes everything we do on his side look so much better to everyone on both sides .
