Rhymes with 'gagstone'

Lets take a look at this house as we originally saw it, shall we?  Starting from the first impression - the outside of the house.  This is basically what we saw when we first looked at our humble abode, but I do believe we'd already cleaned up the bushes a little bit when this pic was taken.  Not a true 'before' pic, so sue me. 

Front of the house, ho hum.....
Backyard from our roof top deck - looks pretty normal, no? Yeah, we didn't know there was about eleventy billion flagstones buried in the ground. Everywhere.  One of the previous owners apparently HATED flagstone and thought they would be more useful under piles of dirt and grass. You'll see in a future post what we did with them...it is faboosh!
More flagstone...and pea gravel (seriously?)

Flagstone and stumps
Let's get a closer look at that corner near the garage - gah!
Flagstones and dirt - and the beginnings of a major project that I will detail soon.  Can you guess what it is?
Stay tuned for some amazing 'afters' as my hot man and I get our patooties outside to work on the yard before Wisconsin's 10 days of summer are over.
