We have been busy working in the yard, so I haven't had a chance to do any posts. I am tired and my hands are sore... The walkway to the garden took longer than expected, because my husband stained the pavers and then had to put them back into place with decomposed granite.
Starting from the right side of our house, from the redwood gate, here is a picture of a different walkway. Flagstone pavers were used here. My husband built the redwood gate.
We have french doors leading to this deck, off our study.
The next picture is the view from our family room. We added a waterfall on the hillside.
You see it from the flagstone walkway, if you continue the tour.
We used to have three tiers of planters, however since we expanded our kitchen, we decided to enlarge the patio off the dining room. This is how it looks today.
We managed to save a maple tree that was by the kitchen window and koi pond. We had to move it, due to the expansion of the kitchen. We are elated the tree survived.
I spray painted the large urns with rust paint for some pops of color. We added red mulch to the beds.
This is a shot of the expanded kitchen and koi pond. The tree used to be in that corner.
Every year, we have birds that make their nest in the sun's mouth. They are there now.
This is the walkway coming out of where the tiered walls are. It leads to the screened in pavilion.
My husband is getting ready to stain these pavers to match the new path to the garden.
He is digging out the old DG first, then he will stain and add more decomposed granite.
This is the new garden path. All nicely stained and put in place.
Our little veggie garden is looking great! The newest addition is the copper lights on top of the arbor.
Of course, my handy dandy hubby put them in place.
Well, I will continue this tour in another post. Happy Monday!
Mother's Day, my husband and I took my Mom out for brunch.
An update on Sasha, she has fully recovered. She is back to usual self.
