Drum Roll Please….

Backyard Construction 022Backyard Construction 016Backyard Construction 003
After many months of planning with an architect, hiring the best landscapers ever, and doing some of the work on our own, our back yard is finished! A  retaining wall was built to raise the level of our yard (we had a 3 foot drop!), countless truckloads of topsoil brought in, a fire pit area was added, new sod, 14 more trees, 13 cubic yards of bark, a new irrigation system, and oh yea, our new fence. I couldn't be happier. Someday when we save more pennies we'll finish it off with a nice matching patio (with stairs leading down to the fire pit area) and shrubs to fill in the beds. I love it, I love it.

I've been meaning to tell you how fabulous it looks! And I LOVE that firepit! I would love to have a firepit someday. What fun memories for you and your kids to roast hotdogs and marshmallows, and sit around and talk. (sorry if you're not the hotdog kind of eating gal. You are a self proclaimed food snob. haha! So maybe replace 'hot dog' with something yummy that can be cooked in a fire pit.)
I'm so happy for you that it's done! Everything looks beautiful!

Wow, it does not even look like the same house, yet alone the same yard! It is amazing what landsacaping and a fence will do!

Love,
Patty
