At long last we are going to start on our backyard. For me, it was much easier making the decisions for the interior remodel than the backyard. Thankfully, we had the help of a great landscape architect, Erin Casey. Next month I’ll show you the fabulous plans she drew for us. Our backyard now has a much larger covered patio and sliding glass doors to the backyard from the dining room and master bedroom. This summer we plan to complete the patio, next summer the fence and flower beds, the summer after… the world. Below are photos from before the remodel and after – sort of the in-between stage. As you can see, we don’t have proper steps, there is gravel instead of concrete and we still have part of our grape arbor. I know it will look worse before it looks better, but I can’t wait to get started!
