Very,very nice. I hope someday soon to have the same or similar done to my CYV here in Hadley Village. Love the privacy it provides. It was a very good selling point to have no visible windows from neighbors on either side, along with Vinyl fences separating your backyards, and finally a solid cinder block & designed painted wall at the rear for total privacy when adding a pool or spa and a birdcage.

Barefoot
Did everything but the stone myself........Next time I would have it all done by an outside firm.......Lots of heavy work and I getting to old for that..........
the stone is in front and back and a full three to four inches deep (good job) . the cost was about $1800.00 but worth it..Can't remember the name of the co. but the paper is full of people who all of this stuff......
Good Luck Fumar

"One growing season , so be careful..." So, if you overdo, you could have a real jungle out there, is that what you're saying?

In other words, you don't have to spend a lot of extra money on "mature" landscaping." It gets "mature" pretty fast...within 2 or 3 years, for sure. The "green banannas" will mature faster than we do.

In courtyard villas you can do whatever you pretty much want in the BACK yard. However, in the front yard we have to go to the architectural committee for just about everything. Small price to pay for the yeard with privacy.

I love our courtyard villa! Wouldn't want anything else.

Fumar - I take it that this is not where you live now since you said you miss some of the perks? I think i remember something about your move. What are you in now? Are you in the same neighborhood?
