Ever since we moved here we have wanted to change the back yard. SOme of it is already done as we created a nice big vegetable garden and then late last summer we removed the sidewalk block pads at the back of the yeard and spread grass seed this spring. But the big possible project is...
We want to change the yard right by the house. Currently it looks like this:
When we redo the fence we plan to move the gate from right beside the house to approximately a spot even with the BBQ in this picture. And so we have a plan. Take the deck right out and put a patio with paving stones (not sidewalk blocks) from the fence all the way to the shed. The patio would come out as far as the blocks are now to give more space. Possibly some plant boxes along the edge?
ANd finally there is the back corner of the yard. With the large full canopy of the Mayday (which is very mature, I wonder how many years it has left?) nothing really grows well there either--except Mayday suckers. SO Patty has a dream of some river rock and a few stepping stones. Maybe a piece of yard art (I think the real dream is a small fountain)
Someday, maybe, when we have money.... But the first priority back there is redoing the fence.
