I've mentioned in previous posts and on twitter about how we were making over our backyard. We've been so busy enjoying it, that I forgot to share it in a post. When we moved into our house four years ago and it was in tear down condition. We have been fixing up almost every aspect of it, working our way from the inside out. I should probably stop and clarify that when I saw "we", I really mean "he", he being my husband. I am really good at telling him what I like and don't like and noticing tiny mistakes, but when it comes to anything where I might get a splinter or heat stroke, I'm kind of a wuss. So here is our new backyard! Everything you can see was done by Jeff, plus his dad helped a lot and a few friends. Fence, flagstone, pergola, sod, plants, there is almost nothing he can't do. I feel so blessed every time I round the corner and see my little oasis. When you live in a big city, it's nice to have a place like this to rest. I can't wait to deck it out with some rustic furniture. I didn't take enough before photos, but this first photo should give you an idea of how bad it was before. This was when we took the old fence down, so you can see into our neighbors backyards.
