Our summer back yard projects included extending the deck to accommodate our new “Hot Tub”, adding a privacy wall around the “Hot Tub, as well as constructing a large flower box. The length of time to complete this breaks down as follows: 1.) Flower/Strawberry boxes 41/2 hours 2) pavers & sod 3 hours 3.) Decking addition 19 hours 4.) Privacy wall 7 ½ hours for a total of 34 hours work hours to complete start to finish. This initially started out as getting the decking and privacy wall added for the Hot Tub, (which had sat in the garage since Christmas). As the Privacy wall neared completion, my wife decided I should also construct a Flower Box & a Strawberry Box which would with stand the attempted onslaught of doggie watering….( Doggie watering had become her biggest nemesis in as far as preventing hardy flower growth as well as the desire of eating the berries.) These went in the outside patio area which also had new pavers laid as well as sod. Now we are down to the stain ..Using my Ryobi Tools made these projects a lot easier and lot more enjoyable doing . Thanks Ryobi , I’m replacing everything I have that is feasible with you guys!
