When we moved the end of April 2006, our new home didn't have a backyard except for some trees. It was full of stickers and lots of weeds.
We leveled the yard, had automatic sprinklers installed, and put down some sod in the summer of 2006.
In the summer of 2007 we finished up the sod and I bought several pallets of flagstone to put around my little pond and waterfall, as well as making paths throughout the backyard.
This is the yard in May '07 above and October 18th '07 below.
