The back of my front

Well you've heard me yabbering on about the backyard landscaping for a long time now - probably 10 years from when the house was built. Well after all the talking here are the pics.

This is how everything looked after my neighbours had the ground flattened for me. They probably felt sympathetic to my plight because previous to this the yard was an ugly jungle of weeds and dirt mounds.

It took a long time but we were FINALLY able to make that entire area of horrible desolation liveable, attractive and suitable for entertaining.

Another angle of the side fence next to the entertainment area.

Needless to say the plants still have to grow and there are trees planted along the back fence (a bit hard to see in the pic), but considering what we used to look at it's just nice to know that our home is now complete. The only thing I want now is for the grass in the backyard to settle in so Lynne, Lulu and myself can have a nice family picnic up there. It'll be truly fantastic :)

Hey it's Kerrence, geez I haven't seen or spoken to you for a couple of years now. I actually sent you an email a few months about something I was chasing up from you but ya never responded "sniff".

As for the backyard, yeah we're pretty happy with it but it certainly didn't come cheap, however, the front and back was done by the same guy so it all matches up.

Funnily enough our neighbour whose backyard was landscaped years ago (which I was quite envious of) actually acknowledged we were now ahead of him because despite the long time frame his yard still wasn't finished yet - though to be fair he did all the work himself where we just paid someone to do it.

In any event it's a really nice feeling to get all this done considering I expected the yard to remain desolate for all eternity.
