Backyard Renovation

















I hope you all are having a happy 4th! We took the dogs to the dog park this morning and ran some errands but other than that we are not doing anything special. I wanted to share some pictures of our backyard renovation today. We bought this house a little over 3 yrs ago now. When we moved in the backyard had been completely resodded. Unfortuately without a sprinkler system and the dogs peeing on the grass most of it quickly died. The bids to put a sprinkler system in were insane so we just lived with it the way it was for the last few years. This was the year we decided we were definiately going to do something about it because we could not live with it the way it was any longer. Rich designed the layout with some input from me and we found this great guy name Buzz to do the work. Above are some before and after pictures. We are thrilled with how it came out and look foward to enjoying it it now. If you have any questions let me know.
I am off to stamp now and hopefully I will be back tomorrow with another card to show you. Until then. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great 4th!

What a great backyard and no lawn to mow!! It is pretty. I also love to see what you're working on.

Congratulatons on your new backyard. He did a fabulous job on it. Now you can cut the grass with a weedeater. Emilia has some great activities to do in the backyard, while you chill in the pool. It's a perfect weekend for a BBQ. We will be right over.

Your new backyard looks fantastic! I bet Emilia just loves it. Do you think we could borrow Buzz for a while to work on our yard? Gary would love having so little grass to mow, especially on these hills!
