I never posted pictures of our "oasis" on the side of our house. We spent two days...sweating, shoveling rock, and arranging it perfectly.
We enjoyed one night in that area. The next day a huge gust of wind came and blew our 4 day old gazebo across the lawn and bent it completely out of shape and to the point that it could not be recovered....THEN,
After we were able to enjoy a few days of it while my in-laws were here, we noticed a small dip in the ground....
Well, that "dip" is a huge hole approximately 3 feet deep. The landscapers never bothered to fill in the hole from where the rain created a huge river through our backyard. They simply placed the material over it and poured rock over it. So, as the rain poured down it created this huge hole.
So, needless to say, all of our work has been a huge waste. We are now going back to the original idea of building a deck off the back of the house. This will most likely happen next summer. Now we just have to find out how to fix this hole and prevent losing a dog in that huge hole.
