What was all grass up to the front door less a small sidewalk is becoming a nice outdoor lounge area.
I built this 465 sf patio in the frontyard, designed it myself, did the block work myself and all the fencing. I also built the gas fire pit for those chilly nights. The only thing I did not do was pour the concrete as it was too big a job, just over 11 cubic yards. That includes the steps and 85' of mow-strip.
All the dead grass area is getting rototilled next weekend and will become planter. Palms, shrubs, rocks and lots of lighting. Next will be lots of potted plants, benches and a patio table with chairs and an umbrella. I plan on an all automatic sprinkler system to boot.
I love building this kind of stuff. Just had to share.
So far the cost is $4,300, but I figure another $1,000 for all the landscape.
