The almost finished back yard, the fire pit still needs its logs and to be hooked up, and trellises on the back wall for the honeysuckle plants. More cactus over the next 6 months, but at least it is clean and the dogs won't be bringing in the dirt...some place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. Planning on putting out some pots with low maintenance cactus and plants as well to break up all the gravel.
The guys did all the flat concrete with just trowels and extended patio got formed and poured and ready to use in a day, just having to keep it watered down while it cures.
Barrel Cactus, that will probably bloom sometime this winter, the largest one is about 3 feet tall.
