Backyard-before and after.


What a mess the back yard was when we moved in (last November). It had been used as a huge litter box by two huge dogs and was a gross gravel mess. It became one of our first projects since we could never go back there with the kids. Here are the before pics.

And now for the after shots.
Now we love it! The grass has grown-still a little patchy, but it is coming in great and I even managed to get a few flowers in to pots and baskets, next year should be better. The kids are loving it! We spend most of the day out there swinging and going down the slide, rocking in the hammock or playing in the pool. We are pretty happy with how it is turning out!

Back yard looks great, vast improvement unless you are into the gravel and dog crap look.
