You might remember this post that I wrote last fall, which featured a gorgeous pergola addition to a North Carolina mountainside backyard. Well, last week I ended up finding my way back to Penny’s blog The Comforts of Home, and this time I discovered a really great project that involved adding a path. When Penny and her husband went to see this house for the first time, they were a little confused about where the front door was. Once they realized it was nothing more than a careless weedy dirt path that would take them there, they knew that adding a proper pathway was at the top of their list.
After a few truckloads of dirt were hauled in to help raise the slanted side yard, a path made of pavers was installed. Ferns, evergreens, and other perennials were added, and a charming iron archway was put up. The surrounding area was finished with a lovely chunky mulch, and the results are fantastic! I would love to have a side yard like this, but we haul a trailer through our yard on a pretty regular basis, so for now I will just swoon over Penny’s impressive yard. -erin
