    2 pallets of rock and $150 pond kit from Sams Club later

    the hose coiled up is normally buried under the ground going to the garden but i had to pull it out because i was roto-tilling the yard to replant it

    that's awesome for being 15. I didn't have the balls to do design and install until I learned more about it here at Purdue in my design/contruction classes. Now, I guess you could say I know just enough to make me dangerous.

    Well, I am impressed with the chairs, the plant beds, and the rock wall. But I am not so fond of the sod you installed. Looks a little patchy to me.

    But I am sure you've gotten better over the years....

    :p :p :p :p :p :laughing:

    Those chairs look really good! The rest of the Landscape looks great as well! I wish I could have done that good @ at 15!
