Taming the Turf

Before this backyard was renovated, the grass was out of control! It was fence-to-fence and took a lot of time and money to hand water. Three quarters of the grass was removed and a large patio and planting beds took it's place. The patio is gravel and recycled concrete from a pathway that was in the yard to keep the outdoor living area renovation affordable.
