Some of you may know, I’ve been working hard to get a patio for the backyard. Originally, I wanted a deck but the cost prohibited it then I found a paver idea I was willing to try for the relative low cost. Then I decided to take the middle road and pour concrete. Myself. By myself I mean that I didn’t hire anyone. Along with the help of three good friends I was able to dig, build a foundation, build forms and pour 5 yards of concrete for my backyard. This is the first step of the project and up next you can expect to see raised garden beds and some custom shrub beds along the side of the new pad. We’re all pretty excited about the whole thing and can’t wait to get the grill up there and get some chairs and a table. I’ll keep you up to date with more pics as I get them.
