Our back deck was sagging from some vermin undermining it at one end so we decided to cut it off and put in a patio made of pavers. My husband did the hard physical labor of digging and together we laid the pavers and I planted. I think it turned out well. We love the change. When the plants grow we'll a nice little area. Sorry I don't have a before picture, but I already took one of the next project to come.

We had extra square pavers so we made the round areas, but we got carried away and had to buy another pallet of them. [dunno]

Thanks so much for all your compliments. Yes those are sweet potato vines, I love the color and are they easy to grow. [clappy] About the view, our backyard is the Chesapeake Bay. We were lucky enough to find this house before the real estate sales went crazy here. It had been on the market for a long time because it needed a lot of work (landscaping, new kitchen, new roof etc.) We are slowly getting it into shape.

I love your new patio, and I love your view even more. My dad used to live on Chesapeake Bay, he loved living there.

Galio, I'm 5 hours from Ocean City, MD!!! Just way out here in the west! I LOVE what you did with the patio, and what a view you have of the bay! I'd be sitting out there all day long on my laptop! [thumb]

Glad you got in there before the real estate market went nuts!

Hey Loz, we are between St Michaels and Tilghman Island. So maybe you are 3 hours from us. If you are ever in the neighborhood.....give us a call

terrific job on the patio!

i have to agree, your view is spectacular!! i just love the eastern shore - any part of it!! we used to go to rock hall when i was a kid...my parents had bought some land...turned out to be a bust because the water table prevented building on the site. i still get down there on occassion...

congrats & lucky, lucky you for getting the property before the values got out of hand!!! you're in a really hot spot!!
