|Linda, you must be happier than a parakeet singin' songs in a peach tree!
Congrats on your new fence at your new home, helping you get your new garden area fortified.
Looks great to me. Rest now, and rest assured, all is as it should be.
Again, good going!

Now I can start building the beds. I've decided to go ahead and do 18" paverstone retaining walls with seating caps on them. I love the idea of practical, "double-duty" building!
I've been researching the "how-to" videos, and short of keeling over from lifting one too many pavers, I really think I can do it myself.
After calculating the cost of buying pressure-treated lumber to build (relatively) short-term boxes vs. Spending the same money on more permanent walls, for me, it's a no-brainer.
Saturday, I had limited time to work in the yard, so I tackled resetting the retaining wall for a small half-moon bed against the fence. There are 21 pavers stacked two high. Even without benefit of having watched the DIY videos, I managed to set them far more evenly than they were. Now, I'm feeling empowered!
