Today's installation finishes up our previous projects and brings us completely up to date. Whew! We've come a long way in our eight year trip down memory lane. Today is a second concrete retaining wall that I couldn't live with any longer. Here it is before I got started on it.
This is my attempt to chronicle the progress around the yard dealing with our many landscaping adventures. Here are the links to previous articles in case you're interested:

I began by adding trees with a vertical concrete mix that I use for other carving projects (here's my first retaining wall project with the mix) and I did a scratch coat for some rocks, I changed my mind though on the rocks and never finished them.
With that, My Landscaping Adventure Series is complete and we are up to date on all our Landscaping projects around here, so far that is. This year we are working on a new deck, Our First Project of the Season- 2015 and I have lots of projects to work on in the front flower bed when time allows.
What are you working on this season, anything fun?
