Before and After

Our yard is finally done and I could not be happier. I am excited about how it turned out and we are NO LONER the only house on the street with a dirt yard! Here are some before and after pics!

Because our lovely lot is on a steep hill we wanted to dig down along the house, take out the window wells and push the dirt back to make it level.


They put in a four foot wall along the back and side of our yard to level it out...



In the front of our house, which is also a dirt hill, we did this...




I love how the stairs turned out!

Here's the front before..

and after...

We prepped it for a walkout basement which will come later.

put in some planter boxes!!! I'm so excited for my garden!

and put in a concrete pad on the side so you can have a place to park when you come to visit us!

Now we need to finish the house off with cement so we don't have the ugly tar look, oh well:-)

Yay!! We have a yard! Now I just want it to green up a bit and wait to two weeks so I can walk on it!

Hey Christie! Good to hear from you. Your yard looks fabulous. I bet it is so nice having it all done. I miss you and the team so much. I am not looking forward to teaching in a new school somewhere. That is if I get a job, but hopefully I can still do a lot of the fun things we did!

So exciting! Isn't it amazing how much of a difference landscaping makes? It looks awesome - ready for some summer BBQ's.
