We decided to make better use of the area around the garage for storage etc. by getting some concrete laid around the perimeter. While we were at it, we decided to add a pad where we park the cars (as we will likely never park cars in the garage). So that was the next big project & another one we did not do ourselves.
This was also a good time to replace the dilapidated fence in the same area. It keeps the chickens in their area and the deer from a path into the garden area. I decided to take that on as the poles would be placed in the concrete. So timing was a factor.
Here are some pics of that process. It made a huge difference on the overall appearance of what is the center our little homestead.
