Patio Progress and Retaining Wall Day 2

Happy Monday! The boys are back in school, and we are back to our routines. It’s crazy to think that they are done with school in a month.  This year went by so fast, it’s scary.

Anyway, our old retaining wall was really long, but it was falling apart and totally unsafe for the kids to play on or even near. Originally, David and I thought we would do a wall the same size as our old one, but I think there was a miscommunication with the contractor because he planned on a 15ft wall. In his original plan he included a BBQ as well, so maybe the wall was 15ft but that didn’t include the BBQ.  We decided against the BBQ because it was way over our budget, and so much more needs to be done with this house.  If we feel like we want one in the future, we have the space to easily add one in.

We wanted a smooth look for the wall with stones that went well with the patio and I think it is looking great.  It needs a topper for a little bench look, but it’s so close to being done!One of the guys working on the patio suggested that we did some kind of border for our window wells. It makes them look a little less ugly, and it also makes them stand out more so that hopefully the kids don’t run over them. I am glad that this was suggested because I never would have thought to do this and it really looks good. Not much left to do and so excited to enjoy it this spring and summer!
