Working with a landscape designer on my back yard, which is boring, water laden, offers no privacy and just ugly.

Hey, Kathleen! Looking forward to the photos of your back yard transformation! My yard is a constant work in progress! I've currently completed "phase 1" of a new front patio area and am in the process of converting my back yard to make it more maintenance friendly (I have plants/trees/shrubs every 6-8 feet around my house and pool deck making it very difficult to mow the existing lawn)...digging out beds in order to create pathways. As I said, it's on-going!

Hey Kathleen! Welcome to DTD! Can't wait to see more of your "boring" back yard. We are all our own worst critic. Make sure to upload any pics- we love those before and afters here! Also, although you're a master gardener, we've got a lot of people that would love to offer advice :)
