Last year we had a terrible backyard. Anyone who came over can say this is true. There wasn't any grass, if you were brave enough to walk barefoot you would for sure to get a sticker, the fence was broken, and not to mention the gophers. So this year we decided NO MORE! Our kids need a backyard that they can go outside and play and not worry about stickers and gophers. So we (and when I say "we" I really mean Brett) have been putting in a sprinkler system. It's pretty much done we just need to fill in the dirt, which Brett dug mostly by himself. He did have some help from his brothers, thanks by the way! Then we will kill all of the yucky weeds and then hydroseed for grass. And we are going to fix the broken fence. YEAH!!! I am so excited. I am excited for my kids to be able to go outside and run around and have a real backyard.

O.k. this picture has nothing to do with sprinkler but I think it's really cute. This is there cousin Greyden.

Looks like progress! We had to totally rip out our yard and start from scratch. It was REALLY embarassing to be a Landscape Architect with a lousy backyard!

Let me know if you need any plant suggestions.

Oh- and your old house next to my folks? The owners actually put a sprinkling system in the backyard and it looks almost nice.
