We are a little over a week into Melrose's backyard project and we have made a good bit of progress, so I thought it was a good time to share the first update! To refresh your memory of the before pictures or the big picture goal, click here

Our landscapers started on the fireplace first and boy is it beautiful! If you refer to my inspiration, you can you see how I developed the design by combining all three fireplaces. The mason said he had never built a fireplace of this design but he did a great job and I couldn't be happier! 

 It's finished! Can't wait to build a fire in it!
They wrapped the stairs in the flagstone - no more ugly, broken concrete!
Lining up the rock for the flower beds. 
That's it for now! They are currently still working on the flower beds and starting construction on the pergola. I'll share more as the progression continues. What do you think so far!?
