Part of my backyard currently looks like this....
There was a lot of this going on Saturday....
And right now, we are left with this....
And this is hanging out in the back yard too....
In the midst of all the destruction, we had a landscape architect come over and draw this...
I'm sure it looks a little crazy to you with all the arrows and such,
but it was pretty amazing watching this woman work.
She spent some time measuring the space and then talking with us about what we
plan to use the space for and what we had on our "wish list".
I showed her several images I had pinned as inspiration and wah lah, we ended up with this.
We will likely start on the plan this year and hopefully finish
everything up next year.
Here are a few things we are planning to incorporate into the backyard design.
An outdoor fireplace is number one on our wish list.
We are hoping to expand our back porch a bit and screen it in.
We would love to have some sort of entry gate added to the backyard,
along witha ton of low maintenance, lush landscaping.
We would like to replace the ugly concrete with a stone patio similar to this.
All images can be found here.
If all this ends up happening,
I think I'll just pitch a tent right next to the fireplace and live here year round.
I'll be sure to have a backyard warming party, and you'll all be invited!
