My sanctuary, I began my yard makeover in 2005.  I just bought my house and was somewhat new to gardening.  I started with 2 beautiful rose bushes, 40 year old Chrysler Imperials. I now have approximately 80 rose bushes, trees and rose carpet. It was 8 yrs of all trial and error until I finally reached a garden plateau that I was very pleased with., Yards Design
My Railroad Themed Garden Project, I restored a real railroad crossing signal with working lights and bell a few months ago. I wanted to put it in my backyard, but I new it would look strange just standing by itself. I love comming up with creative ideas, so i decided to make railroad theamed garden project out of it. I first worked on making the tracks, which I found most of the materials in hardware stores. The tracks are made from metal fence posts,decking fasteners and cedar planks.Next, the walkways were made by using cedar planks mounted on 2x2s. and filled in between with colored pea gravel, which is held in by cedar edging. Then just finished it off by adding stone,multch,plants and flowers. I also restored a switch track light that lights up. Then I wired up both RR lights and bell, which work by remote.
 I finally finished my project by adding a personalized sign, which I found on ebay. 
    I have gotten many people asking me when I am going to build a train to fit on the tracks or adding on a train station. LOL!!!  I tell them maybe next year. If i do decide to add anything on i will post future pics. 
 Well it did'nt take but one day to add on to my project. I have put a 1930s restored parking meter, along with a RR sign and old wood planter, by the side of my garage. You wiil see this first before entering the RR garden (see new pics.  I also added some more detailed pictures of the RR garden., Yards Design

Backyard landscape, Need some landscaping ideas for this backyard space. Specifically, would like advice on the hill which is currently covered with pinestraw. Rocks were used to assist with drainage when it rains. Considering larger rocks or different design as the rainwater tends to wash the soil into the yard.  Any and all assistance will be greatly appreciated. Grass is dormant here in GA but should be greening up soon!, Yards Design
