Before & After: A Vibrant Fire Pit Garden and Los Angeles Hang Out

side yard, before, bright, los angeles, shephard's alley, remake,
the before isn’t terrible (the cute purple shed sort of works for me) – but it is a little chaotic and certainly not as usable as the groovy fire pit garden that it becomes.

I am so in love with this before & after and super excited to share it with you guys!

Yes- this photo is really the before shot and when I saw it over on Shephard’s blog (no longer in existence), I thought maybe I missed the before photo.

I mean, come on…how often do you come across a yard that’s already awesome transition into something even more spectacular?

Hardly ever.

It’s usually old cracked patios or crunchy dead grass or gardens that are beyond parched being made over. Not a yard that already has a sweet path snaking through plush, vibrant plantings, leading back towards a cute little corner shed. But, if you’re ready for it, check out what this space looks like after the renovation.

The after garden of the Los Angeles side yard features a glass rock fire pit, beautiful wood walls, and a comfortable bench – perfect for hanging out.

Yeah….pretty sweet, isn’t it?

I really like how that ocean-blue fire glass fire pit makes the area feel cool and serene.

And that wrap-around bench is amazing.

But really, everything about it is fantastic, and it even looks relatively easy to maintain. If this was my place, I’d be out there sipping mojitos and listening to music with friends just about every night. -erin
