As promised, come and visit our so-close-to-100%-completed-its-not-funny backyard!
I'm super proud of it; for 3.5 years I stared at a patterned concrete wasteland and a few (too many) hedges. Back in October last year, I posted some pics of our new backyard and entertaining areas, but it's taken me another 6 months to get around to properly finishing the job!
Thanks to my unruly Labrador, there were a few unsightly holes in the new garden that I've been meaning to fill with giant rocks. And when we built the deck, the new level presented a slightly larger drop to ground level than we had anticipated and we had been meaning to get around to investing in a sandstone step. Then there was the outdoor sink, which my husband has talked about FOREVER. And so on. Anyway, this week we finally completed all these tasks... and for a good reason!
Wanna peek over my back fence at a few of the new additions?
ps. I've dropped some not so subtle hints about there being a big reason to get the backyard into ship-shape... but think I might hold the suspense out a few more hours. Here's a little clue to get you thinking, and I'll be back with the full story tonight. Maybe.
