The Final Reveal
Took me awhile to get the time to upload pictures.
This was a 5 step process.
Step 1. Needed ideas, and the original thread is here: http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/design/msg011630204493.html
Step 2. Get Bids and choose Contractors
Step 3. Concrete Contractor finishes his part
Step 4. Staining and Restoration Contractor finishes his part.
Step 5. Plant and finish surrounding areas.
The putting green had to wait because of all the concrete workers. Front yard connects it all!
This is the part that connects to the newly stained patio
And the entire thing.
With 1.5 acres, we may never get done, but we were very pleased with the outcome and prices we received from all the contractors involved. At the very end, we are going to put a flagstone path to nowhere with low green groundcover. That area at the end is simply the top of the waterfall that falls into the pool.
Thanks to you all for your input!
