Last night, Understanding House Mate and I visited a local garden/landscaping company. UHM wrote the check that will start the process of having the back yard redone. There are plans for gravel pathways, plantings and - my personal favorite - a small fenced area designed to separate and secure dogs who don't get along. Work should start w/in the next 2 weeks. We are breaking the process into two parts since the area is in a drought and we really don't want to plant anything right now. Part one will be all the hard-scaping. Part two, the planting, will probably occur this fall.
Before, during and after pictures to come!
