Hot tub area
When you're in juniper-country, in a 50 year old house and yard that's been unkempt for at least 20 years, you essentially start from scratch. This is the result. We're only about 1/3 of the way done, but were smart enough to get the hot tub in early. :)
Small (Under 1,000 sq ft.)
1 of 7: Dig a hole. Make it deep. Do all labor by hand in heat of summer.
2 of 7: Line out placement of hot tub.
3 of 7: Lay gravel and level.
4 of 7: Carry pavers. Again, across the entire backyard because nobody planned for access. :(
7 of 7: Enjoy hot tub. Except the staining of the weathered wood and a new cover. But that'll come later.
