After two years of nothing but a mud pit for our back yard we finally got a landscaper to take on our project. In October and November, we had our back yard re-lanscaped, including significant hardscape, new plants and new sod.
The new hardscape consists of a new
patio area, a low rock wall with seating area, and new agregate walkways.
The project included moving several large plants as well as several new
additions. The grass was replaced with sod, and the arbor was moved from
the gate area to back. Crushed rock was used to make a storage area next
to the dog run, out of sight of the main patio. Bamboo was placed behind
the seating wall; this will eventually spread and grow upwards to screen
the area from the alley and the neighbors.
