A close-up view of the new fence along the east end of the backyard.
The progress so far from the angle that shows the whole backyard...things are definately coming together! We are keeping the existing fence that borders the back - it's not as pretty as our new fence, but it's in good shape. By the way, Collin got the new fencing on Craig's List for a steal!
My role in this project is multi-faceted; I am the beverage/food person, gopher, rock picker-upper, photographer and observer. Not the best job I've ever had, but at least things are never boring!

First came the gravel for the retaining wall base.
And the project continues. We plan to build a low retaining wall along the back fence (notice the two test brincks on the left hand side of the picture) and then install a fence along the sides of the property. The new sod arrives on Monday!
