2017 backyard goal – transform the space into an outdoor living room by May 2017.
We are on our way to transforming the backyard, AND I am so happy! Last year, we updated the fence – Kathleen and David built a new one- and it survived the Great Flood of 2016; so, I think they did a great job! The foundation is ready, we converted the yard into a low maintenance zone by removing the existing soil, grass, random landscaping and covering the entire area in limestone. Next, select outdoor furniture and grill!
For now, we are clearing through remaining items. First up, the lattice pieces that once created a barrier to hide the air conditioning units. These fence pieces are not our style and were broken during a storm last year when violent winds tossed items around in our yard and did a number on the fence. Bye bye bye.
