    Ok, got tile and electrical today. I assume electrical means hooking my eq pad to my sub-panel.tile.jpg

    Wow! I love the stonework and coping! And your spa spillway really catches my eye - I can't stop looking at it. Great contrast between the tile and stonework - looks fabulous! Thanks for the pictures!

    I "think" they have a little more to do. The deck seems a little unfinished.

    I wonder if you could put in a retaining wall and level off the back yard? Or go for an 8 foot fence?

    Retaining wall would cost about $7000. I'm hoping an 8ft fence would help. If that's not high enough, perhaps I can add a pergola with a pull-down shade.
