The Big Reveal

After much planning, estimating, digging, hauling, welding, grading, planting, adjusting, and obsessing, my back yard is complete. I’m thrilled with how it turned out and am excited to share the first pictures of it today. But before we get to that, here’s a 2-minute timelapse video that shows where we started, and how we got here.








Shouts out to Humzah Khraim of Seasonswood Group here in Atlanta for a beautiful design and a job well done—if you’re in Atlanta I highly recommend working with him.

Now… I’ve got to buy some furniture for this back porch. 🤣

    1. Thanks! The trees on the side are sweet bay magnolias (or as I now call Maggie, Sweet Bae Magnolia). The big green one is a cryptomeria japonica, or black dragon Japanese cedar. And the one you can just barely see in the corner is a weeping redbud.

      1. Oh, Cryptomeria are awesome. I have a bunch. Fun fact: “Cryptomeria” means “hidden parts.” Also Cryptomeria is a monotypic genus, which means it has only one species – “japonica.” But that species has many different types. So the Black Dragon sport is very different from, say, Elegans. Lots of photos of different types here.
