Today I want to share with you about Garden/Backyard Planning. We bought our home in 2014. This is our journey snapshot of what we started with and where we are now.
If there is something you see that you want me to go deeper into explaining please comment below.
Here I’m going to show you how our gardening/backyard planning took shape. It would be great if we could have changed it all within that first year. BUT that costs A LOT of money.
To create a garden/backyard of your dreams it needs TIME.
When we bought this place we had one kid, now we have 3 and a puppy. Lots of changes. The most reno work we have done has been to the outside.
The previous owner had a GREAT garden already going. However things seemed to be in odd places and we had to re-work the yard how it fit for our dream for the property.
Here’s the LARGE garden box and a side garden. This garden where the trees are was super overgrown and I’m still fighting an aggressive plant in that area.
Here’s the Greenhouse and the worn out old fence. I got to get a LOT of tomatoes out of that greenhouse. Sadly I still have lots of learning to do and how to grow plants in there. So far it’s been a starter house for me.
We redid the fence, it was awful.
Remember I mentioned Garden Planning taking time?
The Wood was JUST getting weathered.
For our Daughters first birthday last year I tried doing a photo shoot. It shows the new fence and memorial garden that I added.
I really need to print and frame this one!
Here’s the current look at the Green House update we did. My husband broke one of the windows with the lawnmower and we didn’t want to keep replacing the glass so we worked hard to make it more user friendly and to save money.
PLUS everything we did here was re-purposed.
As you can see, we use it more for storage now. It’s tucked behind the house.
We still have more Garden/Backyard Planning to do. It takes time as I mentioned. The kids get right into it as well.
I know I didn’t share any tips on this post, but I hope seeing the before and after it gives you some inspiration to work on your own garden and backyard.
One last photo from last year. There’s a HUGE Reno, that is still happening. I’m hoping we get it DONE within the next 6 weeks and show you the reveal. It’s a huge change for us, We LOVE to entertain. This was when we served guests last year “in the garden”. That gives you a hint.
Have a great day and I would love to hear about your garden projects.
