Our backyard so far

In just three afternoons, my hubby was able to take our backyard from this:
to this:





It's hard to see just how much of a jungle it was before - there were huge moutnains of dirt, and areas of grass and weeds were so high that we couldn't see Ramon in them. Tony rented a roto-tiller, made countless trips back and forth to Home Depot for sod and finally got to use his weed wacker and lawn mower. He built the retaining wall out of rocks the previous owners left behind, and I have to say I'm loving how our yard is looking! We're planning our garden in a part of the yard not pictured, and we're going to plant palm trees and some flowers in the retaining wall area. I can't wait to see the finished product. I'm so proud of Tony!
