You may or may not know about my backyard, but it was a mess. At some point somebody was a gardener in recent history, but then the following owners weren't. So it went wild and things overgrew. It was a mixture of beautiful flowers like roses and trupeter vines, mixed with a nasty broken chainlink fence with at least 6 ingrown tree stumps, scraps of concrete and brick, random garbage and stepping stones. There was also mounds of dirt from where i had dug out the crawl space, chimney footer and basement stairwell.
So my sewer line was bad. Built in 1889 it didn't last. I suspect a 40ft crab apple tree in the backyard had something to do with it. I didn't even bother to try and fix it with routers, or foaming chemicals or cameras. I bit the bullet and replaced it.
Anyhow this is before:
And this is now:
I was so happy when I saw it, almost gitty. Should be digging the garage foundation soon.
oh and the roofing is 98% and I got all 3 skylights in.
