Things are coming together quickly now! The deck in the front yard is almost done...
And in the back, irrigation and lighting systems are in, the seating and fountain areas are built, and planting has begun!
(That large box contains another lounge chair ready to be assembled.) Yes, those are some lavender plants in the foreground. We're going to have some bigger lavender groupings in the front yard. We still have to find a fountain for this back area; that's this weekend's project. I'll explain what the posts are for once that part of the project is done.
We're probably looking at another few days to build the trellis in back, and the front landscaping will go in starting tomorrow and should take a couple of days to complete. Last thing will be the driveway, and we're targeting first week in June to get that done. Then the sod has a month to rest and root before July 4th.
Once everything's done, I'll put up some before and after pics, as no makeover would be complete without them! (Remind me to tell you about the irrigation controller, it's a high-tech marvel!)
