Due to the increasing build costs during Covid, and an unexpected expense of having to remove 5 x large 50ft poplars at risk at a cost of $6000, we will be unable to complete landscaping. We had planned to create a decked area across the front yard with new access to the porch, and plant trees and shrubs all over and on the back boundary and create a large seating area with a firepit, and a greenhouse or summer house but the money for this project had to be reassigned to the tree removal.

Electric bill for Dec & Jan was a very economical $650 for heating, lighting & hot water.
