An Oasis In The Making

My favorite neighbors (my daughter and Kevin) have been hard at work transforming their yard into an outdoor room. They've been working for over a month now, relocating palm trees, building a wall for raised flower beds, getting ready to lay a flagstone patio and creating two different levels for the lawn.

The flat area in front of the wall will be the patio.

This plan involved removing three 20 foot tall queen palm trees - not easy. The pictures above and below show the palm trees' stumps and root balls they dug up.

That looks like a lot of hard work, but it will be so worth it, I'm sure. Look forward to seeing photographs of the finished 'room'.

WOW... hugely impressive all the work they are doing--all that stone and tree removal... It's going to be a little slice of paradise when they're done though--looking good! :o) Happy Weekend, Golden West ((HUGS))
