The courtyard is finished!!

Hooray! Our courtyard is finally finished. Just in time for winter, which starts next week :)

No seriously, it looks fantastic. I am so happy with it. It's come together beautifully. I have been planning and imagining the courtyard for three years now, so it's just so exciting to have it done. The boys did such a good job on it and took great care to ensure it was finished to a very high standard. And so it should be considering the cost. My goodness it's expensive to have landscaping done. But, we now have a garden room on the house and it will be lovely in summer and also on sunny winter days. Can't wait to get out there with a gin and tonic in hand.

Here are some before and after photos:
