One of the benefits of our house is that we live on a slope so we have a nice, bright basement that walks out to our backyard...it's also a nightmare for landscaping. We have no level surface anywhere. We are building three retaining walls in different areas in an attempt to trick the eye and be able to set up our swingset. This is the area in the back yard. Phil worked this whole weekend on the project and I worked about 4 hours. Yes, I'm a bit of a princess.
We have at least two more weekends of work left. Something to look forward to!
This is the whole crew. A guy from Phil's work came over to help. It was a lifesaver for Phil...also allowing me to only work on the project for 4 hours.
the "trench," as we so fondly call it
The bricks. Happily waiting for their new home.
