From a Blank Slate

For 5 years we have known we need to work on our backyard. When we moved in it was a new house and they landscaped the front yard but left the backyard a blank slate for our imaginations. Ben put the vinyl fence, from Lowes, in right away on both sides and our front but there was a section in the back that we didn't do because our neighbor had their own kind of fencing up, and it wasn't pretty, but O, well. We knew someday we would finish it but money doesn't grow on trees!

So Ben finished the fence last weekend. Then yesterday we had Storey Landscaping come in level our yard out. If you can see in the above pictures the pile of dirt to the left? Well we thought we would have a sitting area on that but we decided that if more then 4-5 peopele came over they would not fit up there. This way if they, those mass crowds that swarm our house, don't fit on the stones they can spill over to the grass with their chairs.

They are out there right now, Storey Landscaping! They are putting in our flagstone sitting area and plantinag a tree there. I cannot wait to show you all that! This is the picture I have so far. Then they will make the flagstone pathway from the kids playground to the backdoor. Later this week they will plant more trees and bushes! I feel like a kid in a candy store. So excited!!! So keep checking back as I will keep you visually updated!
