Gabion Lake yard
After a lot work we just almost finished. We have a beautiful backyard right on a beautiful lake. But our yard was 30 years old when we bought the place. We decided to change it dramatically. We had to find a lot of unusual solutions because of our very small budget but we found very nice and very different solutions. We hand carried with our two 18 year old boys two summer 70 tons of cobblestones in our backyard and built a wall of gabions. Behind that wall we filled it up with 45 yard of fill dirt also hand carried. But after all that hard work we think it turned out just BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! What do you think???
The Tao that can be spoken may not be the Tao, but the Zen that can be seen is definitely “on trend”. YardShare members Tracy and Wendy Evans show us how it’s done with their lovely landscape in Hurricane, Utah.
Landscapes are usually most stunning during those times of the year when you can actually see the ground. But there is an eerie beauty to a yard covered in freshly fallen snow as well.
