Landscaped Back Yards

September 18th, 2013 · 3 Comments

Once the summer heat goes away, people start venturing outside to do yard work.  Let’s hope it cools off soon.  These four back yards could use a lot of help.

This yard is ideal for black widow spiders.

The highlight of this back yard should be the swimming pool.  Somehow the seller decided to focus elsewhere.

Usually tall grass would prompt a seller to use the lawnmower.

Nice first impression this Glendale, Arizona home makes.  A spade with a skull face plus machine gun and two hand grenades.

I think these sellers got their landscaping reversed.  Usually the green is on the lawn.

Odd Close-Up Photos

July 26th, 2013 · 3 Comments

A big collection of photos for a Gilbert, Arizona home.  Clutter and what-not.

Caution - Adults at play.  They’re certainly not at work, putting items away before selling.
