Super small yard now has an in-ground spa

Garland, Texas

When I bought my (very small) house, it had a very small yard, a lot of shade and the grass wouldn't grow very well. In 2002, I decided to give up on the grass by putting in a pond/water garden with gravel surrounding it, all of which I did myself. After enjoying my pond for so many years, I always wished I could "swim" in the pond on hot Texas afternoons, so during the past couple of months, I changed the pond out for an in-ground spa of the same shape and size. After the spa was finished, I had to re-landscape the yard yet again and re-laid 2200 lbs. of gravel, but it was well worth it. It can also be heated and 8 jets turned on for lots of relaxing bubbles. Glass of wine in the spa, anyone?
