Backyard Project

Taking on a new, long term project of making the backyard J friendly, making it a productive and enjoyable space while also making it less maintenance long term. I am probably biting off more than I can chew, but will remind myself frequently to pace myself and that it will be a ongoing project that will evolve in its own way despite my preplanning (or lack thereof.)

Spring 2014 My walkway plan is a gentle slop down, then level out as I curve it back to the right go across to the gate (eventually).

Long term plan is to take the walkway over to the fence. For now, just around the new garden spot.

Almost could call it finished, but really more tiles I need to set in place. Very happy with project, but hard work.
