Looks very nice. And I like the minimal yard. I prefer to work on others and relax in mine!

Yes, but I'm going to add a small set of steps to the far opposite side behind where the photo was taken, so my 90 year old mother can go up next to the fence. The cottage stone makes a narrow step, and my wife and I actually walk down at an angle. It took just a day to get the feel for it. But its too short a step run to go straight up and down for an adult. But our goal was to have steps without putting some kind of other material there.

Manor stone would have made a more perfect step, but I like working with cottage stone for my own needs.

Appreciate the compliments from folks, especially after last week's push.

It looks great - I love the innovation with the steps blending into the wall.

I'm not usually a fan of gravel or rock garden areas, but that is a tremendous improvement.

Well, well, well ...

Finally decided that we wanted lawn after all.

So one final phase. Note the date that this thread started. The extensive spring rain settled fill soil behind the wall by several inches, so in the long run, we probably will have a better final product. Only took an extra half day to move the rock around to make room for lawn prep.
