Our original plan this weekend wasn't to work in the yard, but thanks to our dog Peanut and his Houdini antics, our plans changed.
This is Peanut: And this was the problem: The yard slopes here, and the previous owners used a mesh screen to keep their larger dog from digging out. However our 20lb dog could squeeze under the mesh. N decided a patio/walkway would be the best solution so that the gate could still open but not wash out from the front yard drainage.
After 1+ hours in Home Depot finding blocks that go together and a pattern that gave us the right size, we had our plan.
Stringing out the form:Laying the pavers:All done! The plan is to extend it as a walkway in the backyard to the deck, but we're going to hold off until it's a bit cooler out. =0)
My job was to work on the mess in the front planting bed...but after battling 1000's of baby spiders I unearthed and trying to keep N from overheating not much progress was made. We also worked on cleaning out/cleaning up the old house. I will be so glad when we can stop going back and forth!
