The bits and pieces that are the current horror of my patio area have started to creep into my blog entries. We were going to re-do this area last summer but just lost track of time. I did nothing to keep it up other than a bit of weeding, because we were going to rip it all out. It is extraordinary (and mortifying) how much deterioration has occurred in one year. It is hopefully very temporary.
We've decided to get this area done, rather than do it ourselves. Mainly because it is a heck of a lot of work and we want to enjoy our summer. The first contractor came today. Here's hoping that he saw such a trashy mess that his bid will come in low because he thinks that we can't afford big inflated projects, lol!
Anyway, I figured out how to get what I have been working on in my landscape program, on to you-tube. It rough. I can't figure out the camera angles or how to fix the floating mulch yet. Oh and the program has no boulders so I can't finish the pond and waterfall either. Nevertheless, I am still pretty proud that I figured out enough to get this done! Even if the part that shows the pond did get chopped off. LOL Enjoy!
