Rather than trolling craigslist for stuff to buy, I watch for free stuff now. There was a posting for free redwood lumber, so I sent Bubbs over to pick some up.
He only came back with two pieces, but he really helped the backyard!
This is our one "unbricked" section of patio:
The dirt overflows and when you water and makes a huge mess!
So, in about 2 hours yesterday, with a saw and some screws, Bubbs made me a raised bed!
Should I paint it to add to the colorful yard or leave it shabby chic?
