We were able to sit on the concrete decking this morning and enjoy the shade and a different view of our backyard. That line in the middle of the foundation for the garage is where the slope began for the grading of the backyard before we installed the pool. I hated (strong word) that slope from when I first saw it -- before we even moved to this house. It is finally gone, forever! Even without the small details being finished, the backyard is starting to work for us. I feel a happy dance coming on!
