Backyard Renovations

We have started our backyard renovations this week. The first thing we decided to do was extend our patio (we actually really only had a little landing pad) and do concrete curbing to section off our area of grass and rocks. It was really exciting to get this started, because it means that in a month our so our backyard may very well be finished. 
Next up is the automatic sprinklers, which Joe and his dad are going to work on this week. Then rocks and then sod. My favorite part isn't coming till last and I couldn't be more excited. I can't wait to send Blake out there this summer to play and let me be in peace in the house. Enjoy our renovation pictures.

What a great backyard you'll have! I'm glad to hear you have some help getting the sprinklers in.

how exciting. It really is nice to just send the kiddos outside to play while you get some stuff done.

I am so jealous of your large backyard and it will be finished--we are working on 4 years of finishing ours :)

I am so jealous! I am anxious for the day when we will have a back yard that the kids can play in.
