People, there is something that you should know about me: I. Am. Picky. Yes, so picky in fact that each word deserves its own sentence. This, along with the fact that we are both stubborn and, for the majority of the time, are polar opposites in our likes and dislikes, can make accomplishing things a tad difficult and often times amusing for others.
Things we agree on regarding the backyard:
- Concrete slab for the dog kennel (which needs to be shortened)
- Concrete walkway on the side of the house that leads to the gate
- Stain or re-paint existing deck (until we can afford to disassemble it and lay pavers)
- Remove all retaining wall bricks that somewhat edge our yard (not a fan of the color or shape)
- Lay fresh sod
