step inside our house and the place is beginning to look pretty lived in already. outdoors is a totally different story.
since the day we moved in, we've lived with a construction zone for a backyard. in fact, we've been using leftover plywood as a walkway from our garage to our house for the past five months.
we got sick of it all and finally did something about it. thanks to dabney's dad, landscape architect extraordinaire, we had a plan...
...beginning with pavers that lead from garage to backdoor.
we knew we need a friday-friendly backyard, so nearly half is gravel.
with the help of some magic sod, we added grass. the stuff is like 30 lbs hair plugs. instant gratification.
presto! we were done.
we still have many trees and containers to add, but this we'll give us a good base to build on.
p.s. if you're wondering about that frontyard, we haven't touched it. we're leaving that for a spring project.
