Backyard Project

June was a busy month for us. Lindsey and I photographed a couple different weddings, and we started a huge landscaping project in our backyard. To start with we replaced a retaining wall that was poorly built by the builder. The existing wall was made of natural rock and wasn’t constructed tall enough. By replacing it with a block wall we gained about 250 square feet of backyard, and it should prevent the hill from eroding more. And it gave me a good reason to rent an excavator and dump truck, which are fun.

I moved all the rocks.

Mike carefully put them in the truck.

Mostly finished wall.

Now we’re in the process of installing sprinklers and new grass.
