Thirty. Eight. Thousand. Dollars.

Yup: $38,000.00. That's the estimate for the landscaping in our back yard. And that doesn't even include fences (required) or levelling the yard (which has about a 6-foot drop from the fence to the house). Oh, and it also doesn't include ... the POOL!

Ain't gonna happen. Nope.


  1. You mean, the landscaping won't happen, or the pool as well? Can you do the pool idea more simply?

  2. No - the "deluxe" version of the landscaping won't happen. We're still getting the pool! We're just managing the scope of the landscaping contract and how much we can do ourselves. The most expensive part is that our yard has a deep slope from back to front, so we need some kind of retaining wall.


What did you think? Any comments?
