When we bought this 350 year old house 5 years ago, it was a mess. It took 4 years to bring back the house to it's former glory and then, it was time to attack the yard... It was an ugly gravel covered parking and the only access to it, was a rickety metal staircase...
After some hard work, the yard is coming along nicely!!!
Here is what I did this summer:
The main deck. It's big and spacious and right off the kitchen.
There's still a lot of planting to do, I want to hide the walls of the pool as much as I can! There's already a lot of vine that will be climbing the fence in no time!
The upper level balcony is also new!
My handyman and I did everything!!! We are pretty proud of ourselves!
So, as you can see I haven't been idle, just using my hands for something else. :-)
