When we bought our house last year, our backyard was covered with a large, black tarp. No grass, no trees, no plants. The house was a flip, and the flipper decided to leave the landscaping to the new owner.
We finally got the landscaping of our backyard completed this past June. We have a waterfall, a fire pit, a deck, a pergola, trees, shrubs, a patio, an outdoor kitchen. It’s beautiful.
Or it was until the deer and the gophers discovered our yard.
