Cool Landscaped my house

It was a ton of work but I did it myself and I think it turned out pretty good. It's only the start of my plans but it will do for now. Heres the pics

Thanks bro. Dude you know I'll help ya. It was tough. The hardest part was getting the retaining walls level and I figure it was important to do it one time so I used paver gravel as a base and then levelled each brick by itself and to the others. It took me forever, but I think it payed off and my wife agreed.

About the post count: I wonder if Tony deleted some old threads or something.

Looks good Crazy! I know how much work it is - here are my before and after shots. The whole yard was just grass when I started but it's still a work in progress (I'm lazy):

Good Job Crazy. Once yyou do a couple hundred of the bricks, it gets real easy to level them out. We are just finishing the side of the house. About 300 bricks so far. Only suggestion for you would have been to cut the toppers to get rid of the gaps but thats about it.

It looks good Phozed. Mines a work in progress too. I got some more plans drawn out for in front of the retaining wall and in the back and sides. This just puts me in compliance with my homeowners association.

Kruz. Trees would be nice for shade, but I'm lazy and don't like raking leaves . I do have plans for a decorative tree up front and there are two 8 foot Maple trees that I have my back to as I took the pics and some 6ft evergreens behind the house too. It's going to take some time for the to be decent size though
