Back Yard Landscape Update

Well we broke ground last September and the yard is getting closer and closer to being complete. As of today we're about 70% done.

June 2008 - when we moved in. Before we had dogs and they destroyed the yard.

July 2010 - before the chain link fence was replaced with the cedar fence, and before the large overhanging trees in the neighbors yard (left) were removed.

September 2010 - cedar fence goes up

September 2011 - Chaos began

The hot tub and pergola (to go over the hot tub and obscure the view from the neighbors) still needs to go in (bottom left), the trellis along the left side fence line needs to be built, and a few small things still need to go in the ground. Most importantly, everything needs to mature and fill in nicely.  That last part requires patience. Like, 5-10 years worth of patience.
