Landscaping:
tear out trees
excavate and level yard
pour cement retaining walls
pour fire pit
dig out trampoline
form deck around front existing pine tree
build upper patio
build garden boxes
excavate front yard
add new front walkway
new driveway
new fence
move A/C units to side of house
build shed
build small fence around garbage cans
plant new trees, shrubs, flowers
wait for the snow
