Men at Work

This last weekend Trent traveled to Yaqui Drive with me and we whipped the yard into shape.

We had an erosion problem up the embankment by the fence. It was also missing some pizazz, so we built two retaining walls that double as planters and added a palm tree to the existing one that was empty.

The fire ring was just sitting in the dirt, so we built a little walkway through around it and then built up a retaining wall to keep the erosion to a minimum and give us a place to sit and keep warm at night.

We added a little fountain of mushrooms.

And then we relaxed.

My baby!

The night time is the right time to enjoy the fire ring.

The yard is very relaxing at night, especially if you worked hard through the day.
