I was going through my phone pics and realized that I never posted these before/after pics of my backyard corner. We did this in the early spring and what a difference it's made. It is where the hose gets tossed when we're done using it, right off the back stairs.
We just leveled out the area and laid down these super heavy pavers ( look on craigslist for free or cheap pavers! ) Our sweet neighbor gave these to us. The big blue pot will become a fountain.
