The columns are huge and sunk into the ground pretty deep. I was able to bribe my friend Mark to help me on the first day so we got a lot done.
I hope to have the patio and new grass and landscaping done by the end of the day on Memorial Day and then tackle the remaining components of the pergola next week. I am still not sure what I am going to do with my large concrete sink that I typically plant with flowers. Also, my clematis are absolutely huge this year. I would love to eventually get wisteria growing over the pergola but maybe I just train these to do so. I haven't made a decision on that one yet. I am sure I'll be posting more tomorrow. I also need to give an update on the "Hollyhock That Ate My Garden" - I swear that sucker is pre-historic.
