Backyard from Scratch
A summer project that we barely finished before the rain came. I hired contractors to do the concrete and an electrician to wire the spa. My father-in-law and I built the bbq from scratch. Careful planning allowed us to have the cook and guests at different heights. We also built the arbor- check your city code and inform your neighbors of your plans- I did all the stonework and my wife and I did all the landscaping and irrigation. Bury those drip lines to avoid them becoming the dog's next toy.
