    I picked up the bunker mix today for the concrete for the new raised beds for the garden and fixing some problem spots with my fence. I am also planning to replace some trellis and start a new bed for some kiwi plants or grapes.

    I would hosta, trillium, huckleberry bush, and fern the snot out of that space. OMG it would look amazing with that and a few cement and stone lawn features.

    We did a landscaping job a couple of years ago and the boys really love it, win/win situation. Pic during a rare Texas snow storm.

    We're still hoping for a huge yard when we move to Oregon. Of course then I'll fill it with dog training equip. LOL

    Your pools are so nice puts mine to shame, I have the boring rectangular kind.
    It is old, I got it for my 7th birthday.

    Here is part of my yard taken a few years ago.

    Here is Molly coming through the doggie door into the screen house.

    Here is the screen house when we first got it about 7-8 years ago, through the years we have added a few things like a coffee table and electricity instead of running extension cords. Some nights in the summer we open up the futon and sleep out there.

    Our yard, especially the back, is a continuous work in progress.

    What we started with in the back (from left to right) last spring.

    ^Grass started on the right side of the yard, poison ivy eliminated, path edged. :)

    Chances are yes. We are planning on moving closer to where we both work. So I'm pretty sure I will have lots of gardening and landscaping to do, just to make it MINE. Of course I will need places to put all of my plants.
