my husband and father spent the entire day saturday working in our new backyard. to be honest, i figured they would clear the vines & brush away, maybe move the rocks into a pile. i CANNOT believe how much they accomplished! i think the pictures say it better than i ever could! enjoy…
(view from back steps- building on right is the garage)
(view to the left of the back steps- note the large pine tree in the middle of everything)
(looking towards the garage- back steps on the right. messy!)
AND THEN THE BOB CAT ARRIVES!
Everyone loved driving the bobcat- well, all the men. i enjoyed painting ALL day. but it was fun to watch them playing- i mean working- with the big machine all day!
and then the chainsaws came out…
bye bye pinetree!
and before i knew it, the drains for our future patio were going in…
this is a little better view of the work they did in the backyard- the regrading work looks so good! i know it doesn’t look like much, but a few months ago you couldn’t see the neighbors for all the brush. i’m SO happy!(oh, they built that fence a month ago, too! don’t be jealous of my handy husband & awesome daddy!)
so now i have to aerate & overseed the mud pit- i mean backyard.
stay tuned for further developments! : )

Oh how fun (And what a lot of work). It's going to be so nice once you are done.
I have a linky party going you may want to link up: http://theshadesofpink.blogspot.com/2009/10/room-month-great-pumpkin.html
Can't wait to see what you do with it! I like a clean slate…
Wow! Outside projects are always so much work! Looks like it will be worth it!
Great job! I just linked up about our backyard too… always A LOT of work!
That is so much work, but so worth it!
