This post is for Susan, who expected yard pictures! Progress is being made. Our son Brian came to help last week and finally it was time to pour concrete into our backyard hardscape.

I decided, although our house was built in 1940, being art deco it has a very modern look and we've furnished and decorated accordingly. I love modern contemporary so it all works out. I like the concrete aggregate with nice strong clean geometric lines. There will of course be much landscaping around this softening up the look, along with some color, maybe umbrellas, maybe lounge chairs, maybe big colorful pots, all that remains to be seen.

The frames were built

The cement truck arrived

And here is the result

Next up will be the landscaping.....oh and the big cement pad with no stone....that will hold the hot tub, and two firepits, all with a sunset view!

I was excited to see the hardscape pictures - I love that stuff. It really will make a difference in your yard. Can't wait to see the finished pictures - although not as excited as you...
