Up until a week ago, our backyard was nothing but dirt. Nasty, awful dirt that was covered in dog poop, pee, and all manner of construction paraphernalia like rusty nails and screws. Fun place for our toddler to play, huh? Also a lot of fun to have our dogs come in covered in dust every time they went outside.
So Danny and I decided to do something about it! We called a landscaper, got a plan in place, and within a couple of days we had a beautiful, playable backyard!!
Here's just some progressive pictures so you can see what they did for us.
The finished product!!
The lighter gravel is very small and compacted (ignore the dog prints at the edge of the patio - they hadn't compacted it all yet and the dogs apparently had to leave their mark before they did so) so that it's really easy on the feet - a far cry from tetanus-riddled nails! The plants we got to choose ourselves and I'm so excited to see them grow and bloom because I picked most of them for their beautiful flowers! Yay green stuff! Haha! Thanks so much, Danny, for giving us a much nicer place to play "O'side!"
