    Enhancements, Added the large rocks for a more natural look. Planted flat stones in front of the steps. Finished mulch up to the Creek. 8 yards of mulch, and lots of Dingo and wheelbarrow work! In the panorama you can see the entire back yard. It was covered with brush when I started and you could not see past the playground. It's clear back over 150' now. This yard stayed wet and muddy, holding water year round. We've had inches of rain the last couple of weeks, and you can now walk on it next day with the new drainage

    Looks like it was quite a project! Just a tip for next time, I would either trim the weed fabric back under the rocks or put more rock to cover it along the edges.

    Thanks, I still need to put down new sod up to the creek bed. I wanted to leave the overhang until I laid the sod row and clean it up then. If the weather holds me up I didn't want the rocks to sink into the mud during the winter.
