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.
