Backyard transformation

E and I have been hard at work this past weekend and into this week, trying to finish up our backyard. Our goal is to have it ready by our 4th of July BBQ we are hosting with our family. We have torn out the back corner of our square, boring backyard and put in mulch and brick for a corner picnic table area. That was the biggest job thus far and we are so happy the back breaking work is done. Here is what it looked like as we were tearing it all apart...

And what it looks like now...

It is already looking much better! Next on the agenda, the picnic table!
Hubs has been on a roll this week finishing projects, which is very unlike us, we tend to start them with grand ideas and excitement and somewhere along the lines the flame dies down a little. But not recently. After finishing this project, we learned that our 6 month old puppy wants to dig up all our hard work, so we decided for the times we are unable to watch her, she needs be to put in a dog run. E took this idea and within 2 days built a beautiful fence that will keep all of our hard work together and the dogs will still have plenty of room.
He will probably get upset that I posted this picture before it was completed, but I am just so proud of him! He still needs to stain it ( and the fence ) and cut down the taller pieces, but I couldn't be any happier with the way it has come out, he truly did such a great job! Way to go babe!
I can't wait to share a full before and after backyard transformation! Hopefully within the next week or two it will be 100% completed and we will be able to sit back and enjoy the work we have done.
