Before & After Backyard
One of the things we did that I do not recommend is that we did the entire yard at once, mostly on our own. We learned so much along the way but if I had it to do over again I would probably have done the back first because it was more forgiving and less public. Oh well. It is in and done, more or less. I have to get some more current photos but this will give you an idea of the transformation. There’s still a bit of tweaking to be done with accents.
There are birds in this yard almost all day long. Considering that my office and library face the backyard, I have what you might call a very happy-making work environment. Lucky me.
