The photo below shows the stairs I talked about in a previous post. The bottom step allows for drainage to go to the right. The other steps are gravel with wood sides. I like how natural it looks and also the fact that I now have an easier way to get up there!
My only issue with the fence is that I did not have them finish it. I.e., it doesn't wrap completely around the whole backyard and there's still a gate to put in on one side. And now my carpenters have other full time jobs. Good for them but not so much for me!
I'm thinking in my next post I'll show you a few other beds we also built and talk about the plans for the rest of the backyard. And maybe at some point I'll show you the front yard and how we exposed the front of the house. But it's still very much a work in progress.
