Transforming the back yard from an unsightly mess to a welcoming oasis.
This is where we started
Clearing away the trash
Laying a foundation
Repurposing a wooden deck. Far easier than the disposal of an old deck is giving it new life. End of Year 1
At the start of the second year the bricks along the concrete (with the board on top in the following photo) had to be moved 3 inches in the direction of the deck. This involved demolishing the existing brick wall and re-mortaring the re-arranged bricks into what appears at first to be the same layout.
This world needs more trees
Let there be light
Still much to do but finally starting to come together
