Muddy Metamorphosis

 Here's an idea of what our backyard looked like when we moved in.  The non consistent grass was not only unappealing, but we noticed immediately how dirty the dogs paws were every time we let him back inside.  We knew that something had to be done.
How cute is my Japanese maple though?!?
Sorry for the bad shot, it was beyond sunny last weekend and I snapped this with my iPad because my camera battery had died.  ProBlack weed barrier was used to cover the entire "grass" area as it allows water to get through, but not the weeds.
33 bags of pea gravel and nearly 2,000LBS later, our backyard was starting to transform, we're very happy with the results and can't wait to stain that cement patio.  Thank you, Roy & Kevin for all your hard work, it really looks great.  Their backs had to have been sore the next morning.  Skittles please!
