Back Yard Finished…Almost!

  So it took 4 weeks give or take a few days to be completed.  We still have some patio furniture to be returned that we were having the fabric replaced on  together with some canopy blinds still to be added to the kitchen windows outside and last but not least the spiral staircase.  During the course of yesterday and right now we are having some additional landscaping rock added as what was there had significantly thinned out in both the front and back yard since the house had been built almost 12 years ago.

We don’t use a landscaper very often but he swings by once every other month just to trim back a few bushes.  He is due to come round this Saturday morning and add a few date palms to the back wall behind the spa.  We had 4 there before the work  began but due to the harsh winter they really suffered so I just had them removed.  I should be getting 3 x 2 trunk date palms.

What you can’t see from these pictures so I’ll have to take more and create a different post is the 15 mosaics we decided to add into the pool.

We tested out the BBQ and the fire pit on Saturday and had a couple of friends over for dinner.  We had a lovely evening and finished it off by roasting marshmallows over the firepit.  Kirsten couldn’t eat them fast enough!
