Moving on with our backyard make over, there was lots of work yet to do! We were so fortunate to have the skills of some great experts to help transform our back yard into our own piece of paradise.

Carson recruited the help of Rinox and Tersigni Landscaping and collectively they came up with a plan on how to best remedy our situation.


The first step was to make the deck smaller. The dimensions of our original deck size created such an awkward space that is was not suitable for entertaining friends and family.  Enter Quality Gardens. They came in and shortened the deck to create a BBQ and small sitting area. I love that they reused the wood from the deck to make this great planter box. And yes, that’s Murphy checking out the workmanship. He gave it 2 paws up.

Once the deck was resized, it was time for the arrival of the Rinox stone. Very exciting!


The Tersigni Landscaping crew got to work laying down the Rinox stone. They were a great group of hard working guys.


Now we’re getting somewhere!


Such a dramatic difference. Some may be wondering, “No grass?” Given that the backyard space is small, we opted for no grass. Instead, the plan was to accent the stone with plants and other greenery. So, we still get the green with the benefit of low maintenance.


Here are the hard working guys from Tersigni Landscaping. They we so nice and polite. Thanks, guys. Great work.

Next, is the delivery of our shed. Yep, that’s how it arrived from the box store we purchased it from.


Here is the shed all put together. But, we aren’t done with it, yet….


Cue the crew from Quality Gardens!


In an effort to create a more custom look, on a budget, the crew from Quality Gardens added Rinox stone facing to the outside of the shed.

But, we still have to tweak it a bit. Just wait until you see it all finished. It turned out ah-mazing!


That’s all for now! I won’t make you wait long for the big reveal!
