final reveal- our new patio!

It had been months and months that the husband has ben saying he wanted a patio area in the backyard.  After sending him a few links from some of my fave bloggers who had done their own patios, he took charge, and away he went to order paver stones, 450 bags of sand, etc.

I will let him document the actual process (he pretty closely followed THIS link), but here are some photos i took via my blackberry- apologies for the horrible resolution on these:

Looks amazing!  it took him about 2 days of digging (remember that movie Stir of Echoes?  Gotta dig, gotta dig says Kevin Bacon) and then another 2-3 days of laying the pavers, pounding them in, filling in with sand, etc.  He also made a sweet little mini patio for the firepit to sit on, so we dont end up with a crop circle in the lawn anymore!  Job VERY well dome hubby!

Now we have to add in dwarf evergreens along one side, plant grass seed (done this weekend, crossed off list), buy new patio furniture, and build some type of flower bins for the corners. Lots left to do, but it looks so much better than before.  This patio was meant to be!
