We are close to the end of finishing our dirt backyard. A great guy in our ward did the masonry. The brick potato shape is going to be filled with artificial grass (sample in the middle) in a couple of weeks and we are going to spread rock and plant some desert plants this weekend. We are going to fill the corner planters with some decorative plants and the left side long planter with some fruits and veggies. Yeah for less mud in the house!! We also hope to dig down the trampoline to be level with the ground, but I expect that will be a long time coming.
