Backyard Plans

As you can see from the previous post, the backyard was a complete disaster when we moved in. Those pictures don't do it justice.

Our ultimate goal is to use the backyard for relaxing and food production. We completed the vegetable garden with gravel paths and a bamboo fence. Next year I'm hoping to put in the fruit trees and bushes.

Here's some pics of what's been done so far in the backyard.

The deck was originally red with a plywood floor. It is currently blue but we will be staining it green to match the new shutters on the front the house. The fence has since been painted white.



The vegetable garden after the paths were laid.



The new bamboo fence. The plan for the hill is to make terraces that I'll plant with strawberries, asparagus and other perennial edibles.

  6. Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  15. I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both
    equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my search for something relating to this.

  16. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your site when you
    could be giving us something enlightening to read?
