This was an insane project – 6 day gang buster weekend – May long weekend 2016.
I love our back yard, but I also hated our back yard. There was nothing going on – golf course style. The plus side – it’s a blank canvas.
Pinterest is costing me a lot of money – lol. I found a few good pictures to work off of and we came up with this:
Before: (We had to rent a sod cutter – clay dirt is impossible to dig) – we used a hose to paint the outline – cut all of the grass out.
Bricks laid – filling with dirt (See the little pine on the left) – this was a wedding favour from Mike’s cousins’ wedding – Jeff & Mel Flaherty 🙂
All of the dirt is in – walkways installed:
After – Jackson likes it too! We mulched it with black mulch and picked up a whole bunch of trees/plants. I transplanted a lot of the perennials from my garden. This is our “Up North Fire Pit Patio” We love sitting out there around the fire.
