Survey is in!
Once again, neighbors appear to have been dumping their leaves there. There is one home to my left, one to the right and then there are side streets just after both the left hand and right hand abutting homes, so lots of neighbors using the land. Whether or not the former owner OKed this practice, I am stopping it. : ) There is a lot of clean up I want to do/have happen over the next year, including some fencing along the back property line and forming a L up both the left and right rear corners, not completely going down the sides of the property. The point of it is to clearly mark out what's mine, clean up the areas in question. At the right center, there is a berm septic system with a slope that goes down behind it. That is where MY leaves will be composting. I won't be able to see that from my home or deck.
I have also spoken with my landscaper who specializes in masonry or hardscapes, and got an idea of how much it will cost (I plan on saving up) to have a walkway from the driveway built around the side of the garage to the back, where there are remenants of a patio, then the deck.
