New Patio

I though Jordan had taken a few more pictures of this project, but oh well. I LOVE the way it turned out. When we moved in, there was one of those sidewalk block patios in the yard, functional, but not pretty, and Jordan has wanted to replace it with interlocking stone for the last 2 years and this year he did it!

Moved 40+ sidewalk blocks, built a small retaining wall for the garden.Leveled off where he removed soil, layed interlocking stone, re-sodded where needed, and now we have a very pretty yard!on a side note, one night Ethan wouldn't go to bed, Jordan called me to the backyard about an hour after Ethan was put to bed, and this is what I found

Hi Melanie! Your yard looks great! I love the curvy flower bed. We just finished ours. It was more work than we thought it would be. Who am I kidding? "We" doesn't really apply since Andy did most of it. But anyway, Pam Leavitt's husband helped us with that last brick you end up with when you stagger them. He has a wet saw, if you still need help with finishing it off.
