This is the new granite stone lantern that Kent got for his birthday. Now he is just waiting to finish the Japanese Garden ponds to place it in one of them. We'll show you that when it is ready!
Kent tore out the old deck in front of the tea house. He has been building this new one out of trex. Our neighbor tore out his trex deck to build a much larger deck, and this is the "recycled" new deck.
You can see the new "extended" deck. Also now the hole is full of rock for the fountain to drain into. Next step is to cover all the pond with weed barrier, and then put black rock everywhere for the new pools to be complete.
