In the Italian culture- the month of august is considered Bad Luck.

Princess Diana died in August
Mother Teresa died in August
JFK Jr. died in August
My brother Robby almost died in August

Anyway from what i remember growing up, bad shit always happened in August

I dont have any before pictures, so I cant really show you how awful the backyard was, but as I said, stage 1 is finished... I have a decent size deck, but next to no land, so this is what I am choosing to do with whats left...

Stage 1:

- Tearing out dead sod (from when I bought the place... never took root)
- Regrading so I can put in two flower beds, and level off the rest of the yard
- Laying down the anti-weed paper
- Digging the trench for the brick to lay flat on
- Placing 56 bricks exactly where I wanted them


Stage 2: (to come in a few weeks... thanks to this lovely month, I need to wait for another paycheck)

- soil from the bricks back to the fence
- planting flowers and other girly stuff (I am contracting out to a female friend of mine)
- small chipped rocks to fill from the bricks forward
- stepping rocks to create a path forward and to each side...



Pics of stage 1 so far: (from R to L)

If you're planning to put soil behind those "walls" as it appears you are, I suggest you put something like a paving slab against the wooden fence. Otherwise, in a year or so you'll be replacing a rotten fence. Plastic sheeting won't work. The UV will kill it very quickly.
