Well my back yard is over 4 acres ................

Going to put in a kick ass Japanese garden in the back with a crazy big "lazy river" Koi pond in a couple of years.

Ready for concrete deck.

The pile of rocks across from the waterfall will be embedded into the concrete deck and has a couple of large gaps in the middle to fill with soil and some flowering plants. Just have to be good about watering them. Gas fire pit will go where you see the gas line sticking up near the hot tub. Electrical is all done as well. Had to put in an entire new breaker panel for the house to have enough space. The pool equipment got its own 60amp breaker and the pond equipment got its 50 amp breaker both with new direct feeds run out to their own little sub-panel break boxes outside.

Pretty big mile stone with the decking in. Most of the big stuff is done besides plastering.

Got the pond equipment going in as well as the kitchen and last of the stone work and fire pit. Getting excited, can really see what it's going to look like now.
