    Finally got the pool up and LANDSCAPING TIME! :)

    We were really late putting up the pool this year (usually put it up on Mother's Day) due to weather restrictions and a two week vacation at our lake house in Virginia. After coming back to this awful Georgia heat, we knew it was time to get the pool up! Once the pool was up, I realized how much more my yard has been eroded by our monstrous tree. Sooo a couple of hundred dollars later this is what I've done. I really wanted to make a small retaining wall/structure with pavers but I really don't have the money for that this years so that might be a project for later on down the. I found these flower bed runners and used them to make a ring around that tree and I filled it with Pine Bark. I also included some photos of some stuff I did to my front yard this year too! Unfortunately I didn't get enough bark so I need to run by Lowe's tmrw and try to get some more and then hopefully next weekend I can get some sod so I can try to fill in the bare areas!

    Hopefully it will be a lot nicer once I finish filling in the area with bark and some planters and lots of Sod! His name is Max and he is a full blooded Yorkshire Terrier. We just shaved him for the summer.

    Well Max is just freakin' adorable!! LOL.. I'm trying to talk my husband into a Westie Terrier over a Shi-poo that he likes... I just love terriers!

    Finished filling in the mulch ring! And I started laying some Sod. I think I might just do grass plugs for the rest of the bare spots. That worked really well in the front yard.
