Backyard Upgrades July 15, 2008

Posted by battysgirl in Friends & Family, General.


Our back yard has needed some work for quite a while now.  With an influx of out of town guests heading our way soon we decided to treat ourselves and our guests to real, comfortable patio furniture.

For the past few years we’ve had an old wooden picnic bench that we drilled a hole into for the umbrella serving as our seating out back.  More recently we bought a very nice three person canopied swing.

The main issue with the back though had been neglect, the floor was dirty, the picnic table had started to rot and was broken and there was mess every where.


You can see here, about half way through the back yard project just how icky the floors were (although they were even worse since I dug a drainage ditch at the end of the patio there) and the now dismantled table getting ready to go out to the garbage pile.

Lets take a look at that same area now…


Hey!  Look at that, there was tile under all that mud.  The drainage ditch is still there, but I’m willing to live with it for the time being rather than getting pools of water on the patio that take hours to drain.

Don’t you just want to come and hangout in our back yard now?

Yeah, I know, its really time to get that fence fixed…
