A few of my regular readers have asked about our backyard and if we were able to tackle the mess we set out to fix in July. In case you need a refresher, “Better Late Than Never” has some cringe worthy photos from the post-wedding disaster back there.
The process took much longer than expected but just in time for the first snow that is being forecast for Wednesday, we’re basically done. Hooray!
The stone patio turned out beautifully and gives us a nice amount of extra, walkable space for entertaining and eating. The mulch throughout most of the yard was a cheap and easy way to give some continuity to the space and will hopefully limit the number of places that Kona can dig. Finally, Mike rearranged all of the stepping stones to make it infinitely easier to walk through the back to our cars. A “must” for when I am in heels.
This project makes me so excited for the day we own a house and we can tackle home improvement projects together. Though Mike may argue that I am better at nagging about projects than actually getting my hands dirty. I’ll need to work on that!
What home improvement project took you all summer to finish?
