Expect The Unexpected

When we bought our house, the back yard was as blank a slate as it could be. We had dreams & good intentions, but a cascading list of challenges (financial and logistical), plus a set of hard-partying neighbours just made us want to stay indoors.

Over time we took some baby steps: a hand-built raised vegetable garden, a holly plant here, a lilac bush there, and a small DIY garden shed from Home Depot. Every year we would scrape and fill “potholes” with soil and diligently add seed, but what we eventually ended up with was a lumpy, patchy space used primarily as a dog run. And that shed we so proudly built ourselves? Hopelessly saggy, and becoming more so thanks to tunnelling rodents (tip: we should have chosen a poured concrete pad foundation over concrete blocks). We needed help.
