Like our backyard transformation? (2015)


Thought I'd share pics of our backyard transformation this past year. It all started with the installation of our new coi pond, we got for $200.00

What do you think of our new oasis?

I just love it, its so relaxing sitting out by the pond watching the fish, and other wildlife.

TalkingLOVE it!


WOW! Job well done!
And oasis is exactly the right word, Cathy - that looks like a terrific space to chill out and enjoy the results of your hard work.

Question


Thanks, its a lot of hard work.
How much do you think an install job like that would run?
Considering we got the pond & rock for a steal deal.

Oh gosh, Cathy, I have no idea, probably a good amount, haha! I know my sister paid in the thousands for a couple beds to be dug out in front of her house and one larger bed in the center of her yard. They were planted with just a few dozen plants, nothing special though. To me the price was shocking, but I think people will pay a lot to landscapers just for the planning and creativity they offer. You probably saved thousands just doing your own pond too!
