I must say that these are genius people. Remembering the man who has turned his annoying tiny patio into an awesome place? Now this time the work’s much more complicated and tough, but it is all done, by hand. A wonderful backyard can be a great part of your house, but what if it is hilly and deserted? Then this is the manual teaching you what to do. And this man indeed succeeded. The result is really WONDERFUL!
