Ever since we moved into our home, we knew we would have to tackle the back yard. There is creek that runs through it, that has been eroding away our property at an astronomical rate. The grade was so bad, that water would just pool in several areas after we had any rain. The patio was built incorrectly and the sand that was used as back-fill behind the retaining wall seeped out. We didn’t even allow our kids to play back there. It was a total waste of a yard. This year, we decided it was time to redo it.
We were under the impression we could do everything but the decorative concrete patio work ourselves. We were wrong. As much as a “DIY’er” me and my husband are, we realized there are some things best left to the professionals.We were still able to remove all of the old retaining wall blocks ourselves and excavate the land with a rented bobcat. Other than that, the amazing company, Concrete Tailors of Noblesville, IN came in and blew us away. We are about 50% done with the project and the progress brings tears to my eyes. I just had to share some before and after pictures with everyone.
More pictures to come!!
