Back Yard

Karenathome in Cattaraugus, NY

Yard is on a slope down from the house to a pond. I have several ideas, just waiting for spring! I would like to terrace out about 5 feet, then put in a small retaining wall with the rocks that were dug up when the house was build last fall. I have drains from the downspouts that I would like to use as a dry creek/pond that come out of the terrace wall. More to follow!

1 of 15: Finally Done!

2 of 15: A blank yard. I can't wait to start

3 of 15: With all of the beautiful weather we have been having, I've gotten a jump start on my retaining wall. This is a very time consuming project, but I can't wait until it is done!

4 of 15: Somehow we got side tracked from the retaining wall, and started working on a small garden in the curve of the stone walkway. A friend gave me a pond, and I am currently transferring the spring bulbs from my old house all around it. It is surrounded by flat stones.
