Sporadic updates on the renovations of my 1924 Spanish colonial revival house in Coconut Grove, Florida. One less "mcmansion" in the Grove.

Sprinkler system for Memorial Day weekend.

This is how the house looked the day we purchased it.
Memorial Day weekend 2012--we obviously lost a lot of our plants during the renovation. Today we are adding an irrigation system so that we can start to bring the property back to it's original lush landscape. Things grow fast here in the sub-tropical zone of Miami, so it should not take too long for new plantings to fill out. My two mango trees in front of the house are starting to drop their fruit. yum.
