I like to landscape, garden, repair home and auto, and assist the Boy Scout. In the first year, we designed and landscape the courtyard and the flat area of the backyard. The hillside area of the backyard took us two years to completed from the design to the completion of the project on September 2006.

In my backyard, we built a steps on the right and divided the hillside up into 4 sections with 4 long retaining walls. On the top section, I built a patio for guest to enjoy the view of the San Jose city. A section below, I planned 4 palm trees. The middle section, my 10 grape vines fill the left half. My 2 persimmon trees are in the right half. The bottom section, I planned 2 cherry trees, two pear trees, two Chinese date trees.
