More Exercise Via Yardwork

This weekend I got a good deal of exercise completing some more yard work.  The next focus will be on the grass in the front yard, trying to fix some of the bald spots caused by flooding last year.  The goal is to have a nice yard to relax in while completing my exercise goals at the same time.  In one day alone this weekend I walked about 11 miles.

In one project this weekend I used some old dog food cans and some old wood to create some flower planters to mount on the fence.  This adds a nice mix of color to an otherwise blank wall in our backyard area.  It was super easy to do, and best part it was free.  I’ll have an endless supply of empty cans as well since two of my dogs are on special diets.

Here are some pictures of the ‘old can planters’.
