The Evolution of the Back Yard – Part I

We have been asked to participate in the Historic Tour of Homes in a few months. I’m excited!

I have wanted to create a book of before and after of our renovation for a while now and now is the perfect opportunity. It allows people to see how far we have really come.

As I peruse through photos, I’m in awe of what I’m seeing. I think in the midst of the chaos and the exhaustion, it’s easy to forget where you start and where you have ended.

The backyard has been our latest renovation and I couldn’t begin to write one post on the progress. It would be a mile long.

Today I will go back in time when our backyard was Jumanji.

You know, the living vines,the giant tress that went no where. Dying trees from the inside out.

Broken down chain linked fence

Dense brush and debris

Options included clearing out the debris and leaving it a dense wooded backyard full of half dead trees and zero opportunity for grass growth.

We chose to have a company come in and clear out the trees. 40+ trees were removed. This left us with a football field of grass. It was clean and a beautiful blank slate.

This was just in time for a giant white tent.

A tent that would hold all of our family and friends.

A tent that would celebrate our daughter and her new husband.

This phase of the backyard was worth every minute and every dollar.

But it was time to move on.

Get ready for the next phase. I’ll be posting photos soon!
