Using what we already own, and buying very few things, I hope to turn our backyard into a nice space to spend our summer evenings. In my dream plan this would include installing a proper fence (proper meaning wood or vinyl, not the short chain link fencing we have now).
This is especially on my mind recently after a particular neighbor took it upon themselves to reach through our fence and kill off some grass we had growing in a empty space between our concrete pad and our fence. Not exactly the nicest thing to do, right? I think they thought they were being helpful, but honestly, I was shocked.
However, a proper fence is not in our budget, so at the very least, I want to get some of this bamboo fencing for that particular corner of the yard. It will keep nosy neighbors out, and hopefully block headlights from the other yard as well.
The concrete pad is my main concentration of effort this year. For awhile now it has been a bit of an eyesore, with a mishmash of items plopped on it as both a storage space and a makeshift patio. I intend to change that this year. At the very least, it should be tidy. At most I would love for it to function as useable space, even if it is in a very odd place in the yard.
Project "clean up the corner" is underway! What home projects are you working on?
