The next summer we still struggled with the lawn, it did get green but still unhealthy and we had lots of weeds. Although we wanted to focus on the grass the neighbours were more interested in putting up a fence so, we jumped on the bandwagon and got a fence built, putting the plan for our lawn on the back burner. Um??? I don't seem to have a picture of the fence being built, oh well you'll see it in the next step.
The following summer we were able to get back on track and actually planned the big picture for our backyard oasis, it's taken a few years to achieve our goal but check back tomorrow to see the next steps and the finished backyard oasis.
