This backyard started out in 2003 by renovating the homeowners pond that was not very pleasing. The previous contractor had made all of the typical mistakes and left the homeowner with a bad taste in their mouth. After the pond renovation was completed the homeowner tried several attempts to have me come over and landscape around the pond but I never made the time. Shame on me for leaving her high and dry. I will never do that again. The first photo is of how the landscape looked shortly after the pond renovation and the second is how it looks today.
