excavation

Filed under: garden, house — freeformkatia @ 1:14 pm

Richard has been excavating in our back yard. This is the long-awaited backyard reno that we’ve been wanting to do since we bought the house last year.

So, last year the yard looked like this:

This past weekend Richard dug and dug and dug… and now we have this:

And of course all of this:

The plan was to take up all the brick, regrade the slope so it goes away from the house (water and drainage issues), put the brick back down around the edges, put the new pavers (big grey ones pictured above) down in the center and have a small garden along the back fence and along the east fence. Well, after Richard did some initial excavating he found under the brick-gravel-sand combination… CONCRETE. sigh. So much for regrading. The rest of the plan remains the same. Next spring we’ll replace the fence. Then I’ll have a usable back yard! Yipee!!!
