Shot crete (not sure if I spelled it right) should be done this week. Few more months and we're hoping it'll be done in time for summer.
And here's a sneak peek of our back yard (part of it). I can't show our dying (or died- past tense) cypress trees from lack of watering them. I need to keep up with garden work, which I only have time to do while the kids are playing in the backyard.
