When Spring arrived it was time to put the finishing touches on the backyard. We had a landscaping company remove the excess gravel that was mixed in with the dirt surrounding the new driveway, and they also brought in new topsoil to help even out the slope from the garage toward the fence. Then we planted grass seed and some flowering bushes and perennials around the perimeter of the driveway.
We also had the landscaping company install a few stepping stones from the driveway to the side door of the garage, something we hadn't thought of when the garage was being built. We're really happy with how it all turned out!
