I want to show you photos of the new patio we put in ourselves. Well, actually, that Galen put in, since he did most of the work, but I supplied him with plenty of iced tea and coffee. We now have a small new patio under the big holly tree in the back yard.
By the way, this coleus growing in the flower garden caught my eye the other day and I had to take a photo of it.
As you can see, the patio is between the two stone walkways that lead to the garden and the back of the property.
Galen dug up the area first, put down paver base and stones, and then made a molded frame out of wood for the concrete pavers.
He poured each paver individually from the one wooden frame.
And now we have another sitting area ~ a place that we can enjoy alone or when friends and family come to visit.
