I picked up the bunker mix today for the concrete for the new raised beds for the garden and fixing some problem spots with my fence. I am also planning to replace some trellis and start a new bed for some kiwi plants or grapes.

I would hosta, trillium, huckleberry bush, and fern the snot out of that space. OMG it would look amazing with that and a few cement and stone lawn features.

We did a landscaping job a couple of years ago and the boys really love it, win/win situation. Pic during a rare Texas snow storm.

Here is part of my yard taken a few years ago.

Here is Molly coming through the doggie door into the screen house.

Here is the screen house when we first got it about 7-8 years ago, through the years we have added a few things like a coffee table and electricity instead of running extension cords. Some nights in the summer we open up the futon and sleep out there.
