Backyard improvements

Made some changes to the back yard since I retired. A table with an umbrella and chairs, and a gas Bar-b-que grill. Russell and I love the grill. So much easier than charcoal. We had burgers tonight, but we've also had steaks and chicken and pork chops. Russell even cooks on it.

Today we did a project I've been procrastinating for 5 years. I have a retaining wall with a narrow strip of ground between it and the fence. I've always wanted to put ground cover up there, but thought it would be a lot of work. Russell volunteered to help, and it took less than an hour (shopping time not included). 54 plants. They should spread out over the summer.

Here are some pictures:

  1. Jackie,your backyard is looking good with the new grill and outdoor furniture. And your plantings along the retaining wall will look nice when they begin to grow and fill in. Nice work. Nice of your son to help.
