Finally gave our own backyard a facelift. Nothing too fancy, because we have 3 small dogs. But we like it now. Built the building as a detached guest room last autumn, on blocks to be easy on the big Douglas fir root system. So the idea to skirt it with a short fence came to mind in the middle of the facelift last week. I've wanted one of the circular patios for a long time. Sure made me appreciate those landscapers that are really adept with pavers. It's not really just a piece of cake. The ramp was a brainstorm two summers ago when we bought the place. The skinny side stairs were a pain. So we culled them, and ran a ramp to the upper tier of the back yard. I really suck at deckwork, but it's fairly stout. Actually, improvise is a better word than deckwork.
