Our Yard Reno

We're making an oasis for ourselves - away from the hustle and bustle of life.

A place of calm, serenity, and comfort.

I talked last week about how I want to build an outdoor lounging space (read bed) in our yard...

Here are some pics of the work that we've been doing:

A new garden that I've put in - the plants went in on the weekend: Sedum, rhododendron, Japanese maple, hydrangea, rose, and some redhot pokers :)
The concrete lantern on the left side was a garage sale score! only $6!

Our new retaining wall. We took down an old rotten one and put this up in an afternoon. It sure helps having a partner with big jobs like this one!
Shrubs are getting delivered on Friday for complete privacy from the main road!!


  1. I want to come sleep and lounge in your's shaping up beauteously!!! Deborah

  2. love the changes...look forward to seeing the completed oasis..
