Just finished a big transition in our back yard a couple of weeks ago. We still have a few small trees to plant, and the vegetable garden in the corner to work on. But it’s 80% complete now.

We replaced lawn with decorative rock and a paver patio, plus hemlock bark. The building is a detatched guest room we put up last autumn. Its on blocks to spare the Douglas fir tree roots. The tree is behind it, about 7′ behind.

Edit > August 2010, we decided on some lawn afterall. Worked out nicely, allowing the backfill soil at the wall to settle with late spring rains.
