If you've been over to our house anytime in the past few months, you would find either one of two things: (1) incessant rain and storms, or (2) Jeff outside in the backyard. Yes, it has been an incredibly rainy season for us in Texas. We even had school cancelled one day due to heavy local flooding in our area. But on the occasions when it's been clear and sometimes sunny, you would most definitely find Jeff outside in our backyard working on the landscape.
Last year after we had the pool installed, we decided to wait a year before embarking on the landscaping. It was pretty barren back there, a blank canvas for the backyard except for one tree left from the previous homeowners that we later discovered is a grapefruit tree. (We're looking forward to some grapefruit cocktails one of these days!)
So amidst all of the spring rains and floods, Jeff began designing and planting several areas of landscaping to frame in the pool and enhance the backyard. He's done a TON of work so far and it's really coming along. It's amazing how lush and green everything is looking thanks to all of the rain. Sure wish we could figure out how to share the wealth of rain with our neighbors off to the West.
Notice all of those big landscaping rocks surrounding the various garden areas? Be sure to ask Jeff about THAT story when you see him! ;-)
