From the top of the deck we no longer have privacy from all of the other neighbors' decks in the neighborhood. So we got the great idea to put in a concrete patio, especially since we have two elderly Great Danes that need more room for beds to relax. After we planned (and killed the grass) two years ago, my husband tore his ACL. Last summer he was having neck problems and we just couldn't physically do it ourselves and hated the idea of paying so much to have someone do it for us. Now going into this summer, I am recovering from shoulder surgery and he still struggles with neck pain. Please give us and our even more elderly Great Danes a chance to enjoy our backyard this summer without having to see everyone else doing so and have them see everything we do. If we don't have to pay for all of it, we wouldn't have such a difficult time with allowing someone else to do the work. I even forgot to mention the two parrots who love to hang out outside too and would really enjoy more space so they don't have to be so close to the two Great Danes!
