We had to dig everything up and start from scratch so we could put in drains. With the exception of the retaining wall that was already there, we’ve done all the stone work ourselves. Which included me walking around the yard digging up rocks to line flowerbeds until I ran out and had to buy them. And FYI – after I leveled 4 tons of flagstone and shoveled 3 tons of decomposed granite – I’m not liking the patios – you can’t sweep decomposed granite – all the loose pebbles are making me insane!
It’s still a work in progress – but here’s what we’ve done so far. Now we get to start on the front yard and begin putting in the vineyard.
