Nobody Rides for Free

I've been dreaming of this day for a long time. Our once weed filled backyard is now carpeted in a thick green shag. We did it all ourselves, pulling up weeds, installing sprinklers, sifting dirt and laying sod. Well, "we" is pretty inaccurate. When I say "we" I mean "John." My job was watching the kids. Which should put me in the realm of "we," but don't think I was sweating in the sun or anything. We started around April so, you know, overnight success!

Big square of weeds and dirt:
Installing drainage for our slightly sloped lot:

After sifting the dirt to remove weeds and rocks:
The planter is built of recycled concrete and will soon house an olive tree:
Now, what to do to the giant, white wall...
