Thread: Pictures of our backyard.....
#1 Pictures of our backyard.....07-13-2008, 10:08 PM
I was rinsing off the deck and decided to take a few pictures to show some family that live out of state and I thought I would share some of the pictures with you all.
We have been working in our backyard for months. My husband tore apart our old pond and rebuilt it (made it deeper and wider). We had someone take up our old deck that was presure treated lumber and put down cedar (the shape is the exact same way my husband built it the first time) and build an arbor. We also put chopped stone around our planting beds. Our yard has been a friggen mess for months. My husband got the ceiling fan up last weekend and we are finished for the most part. Of course what project is ever truly finished?!?
I took so many pictures that I can't decide which ones to post so I'm sorry if some of them are overkill.

I thought I would show you a couple water lilies that recently bloomed. The purple one is called "Bagdad" (no "h") and is a tropical water lily. The yellow one is a hardy water lily but I don't remember what it is called.

OMG, it's gorgeous, truly lovely! I was going to post pics of my little bitty garden, but I'd be ashamed. You've done a wonderful job. I don't know what's nicer, your kitchen or your back yard and pool.
I love that little pond with all the rock work. Did you have a landscape architect design that for you?

If you look at ponds on the internet there are more ugly ones that pretty ones. Even a lot of the ones that are professionally done look crappy. My husband is an industrial designer so I guess it's in his blood. I do all the planting and he does all the manual labor. :p
I'm really happy with this bed I did. Well my son and husband laid the chopped stone but I did the planting. Actually my son dug some of the holes.....:p
*edited to add, please post a picture of your garden.
