In 2010 the husband built me a backyard garden. In 2011 we covered the lower part of the backyard with grass. In 2012 the husband (and some hired help) transformed the walkway in front of the garden from boring concrete to beautiful pavers.
So, it’s now 2013 and time for another backyard remodel project. Of course. This time we remodeled the patio area in the lower part of the backyard (no garden area was hurt in the making of this remodel).

What we used for the backyard remodel
All of the paver installation was done by Pavers by Porter. They said the project would take 4-5 days and they were done in 3. The owner was extremely friendly and cared enough to walk me through the work they were going to do and to ask my opinions. This doesn’t always happen when we have people working on our house.

The new seating bench/wall/area for a table to eat outside.
Another little seating area/wall to block off the A/C.
The new step going down from the walkway to the patio area.
We have hardscape step and wall lights installed all over so we can see at night.
A close up of the Lafitt Slab Pavers for the patio area. There is talk of also putting in a fire pit…
And a shot of the whole area. Don’t mind the few wet spots. We had some snow the night before I took the pictures.
I’m really happy with how the whole thing turned out and I can’t wait for summer so I can sip martinis in my newly remodeled backyard while watching kids versus dogs on the grass as my garden grows.
If you are in the Northern Nevada area and looking to remodel your backyard (or front yard) I highly recommend buying Belgard Pavers from Parker Hardscapes, Nox Lighting for outdoor lights and Pavers by Porter for paver installation for patios, walkways, driveways and more.
Note, my husband and I are part owners of Nox Lighting but this is not a sponsored post and I did not receive compensation for mentioning these companies. I love my new backyard and I want to share.
