Back Yard Makeover!

Before we moved we did a BIG Back Yard project! Our yard had a steep slope, grass wouldn't grow, there was no place to was a mess! Over an 8 week period we completely made over the yard, adding stone steps, a paver patio, sod, and more! I miss that yard :)
Ever started one project that gave birth to 37 more projects!!!? That's what this back yard project did!
We had a terrible slope and too much shade to grow grass...soooo in came tons of dirt and down came some trees!
To add a bit of a cottage feel, we added stone steps going into the yard...
There was a whole lot of digging required to get the space ready for the patio...oh, and a retaining wall!
But how we loved that patio! It was well worth it...
We have 35 plus extended family members that we entertain several times a year and the back yard was perfect for entertaining!
We also built a BIG picnic table and a play set for our tiny granddaughters! Lots of projects but really, there was a fantastic payoff! xo
