Building out the Backyard 02

The bobcat came in and regraded the backyard. That plus clearing out a bunch of the debris sets the stage for finessing the terraces.

It was too wet and sloppy today for me to want to trek up to the end of the yard for an overview shot but you’ll see in the next batch the difference.

The irrigation system piping is now buried except where final connections need to be made.

 

Looking closely you can see that the yard immediately behind the lenai is now level and there are two terraces taking shape beyond that to the left

 

 

 

The side yard is prepped. There will eventually be a fence and some nice space for the bird bath and a new bird feeder.

 

 

As viewed from the side of the above shed. It’s a bit hard to get a sense of the angles from this perspective.

Building out the Backyard 01

On the heels of last years epic renovations – Pool, Lenai, Driveway, Retaining Walls and Front Lawn and Irrigation system, we’ve embarked upon a less ambitious project ┬áto address the area behind the Lenai which comprises the bulk of our back yard.

This time we’re working with Brian Plett of Blaydes Landscaping. He is local here to my subdivision. No web page I’m afraid so I can’t link you to him.

I took a few before pictures to get a sense of how things look as viewed from the house:

 

Work began in a relatively small way, the bobcat will be here tomorrow and that’s when the work can begin in earnest. Today was mostly some cleanup and roughing in the irrigation system.
