So this is what happens when my husband gets bored and needs a project to do:
He is currently working on fixing and updating the sprinkler system in our backyard, so my beautiful yard has turned into this. We're also adding in three additional faucets throughout the yard. There were no faucets in the back of the yard so in order to water things back there you have a drag a 200 ft hose all the way back...not ideal. I'm not thrilled about my yard being torn up, but I know it will make things easier and better in the long run. As long as we don't go into a stage 3 drought, I may be able to have green grass again :-).
