Our Backyard

As I mentioned in an earlier post we signed a contract with a landscaper last Friday. I took photos of our dirt lot last night after the guys came out to mark where the sprinklers will be. Here's what the main part of our yard looked like, for those of you who haven't seen it:
This morning at 8:00am the crew arrived again with a Ditch Witch. (If you don't know what that is, click here.) They trenched all over the yard and were gone by 11:00am. Here's what they left: The sprinklers will go in those deep trenches. After that they'll lay the concrete, then do the brickwork (or maybe it's the other way around?), build the cement retaining wall/bench, build the redwood vegetable garden box, lay DG (decomposed granite) around that box and finally, lay the sod. Chad and I are going to plant the trees, plants and vines ourselves after the crew is done.
