Think of the below photos as "in progress". The entire lot is about 10,000 square feet and the backyard is pretty large and used to slope down. We dug out the dirt, used railroad ties to create a separate patio area and used decomposed granite as a "topping". And last but not least, we finally got to a point where we could call the fire pit "finished". We are super excited also because our buddy, Jose, offered us a bunch of free dirt to help us level out the rest of the yard and then we're installing a sprinkler system and laying grass (Holla!!!).
I stripped the paint off this old door and painted it a snazzy green and accented with some potted plants (to the right). Russ has been laboring on the cement slabs (we have 6 more to lay)
