Before & After: Chris and Carrie’s Sideyard Retreat

 

backyardbeforeThis week I’ve got another simple backyard makeover for you to pull ideas from. If there’s anything I’ve learned about myself since buying a house, it’s that big projects usually don’t ever get finished. I either get bored of them or they end up taking way more time than I can commit. So I’ve kind of started to enjoy these smaller outdoor projects…they always seem to be much more fun and attainable! Easy enough for a weekend and you don’t have to spend a lot of cash.

Last summer, Carrie and Chris from Hazardous Design spent some time ripping out the jungle that was growing on the side of their house and it ended up being the perfect spot to hang out with their friends. The row of arbor vitae looks so much neater and, like Carrie says on her blog, this spot will look even better once ground cover fills the channels in between the stones. The umbrella was a good call; this area gets a lot of sunlight! Anyway, I’m really enjoying the new digs, and if you’ve got a minute you should check out the rest of their yard. –erin

  1. It is true at my house that big jobs don’t always get finished so I have tried to prepare my staff (i.e. husband) for a set task for a weekend. Easier on family relationships.
