Gardener's Armor 468x60

We have probably done more than our share of backyard projects over the past few years. My husband had already started several before we met.

I am going to touch on some of our backyard projects on this page. I will then get into more details about those projects as needed on separate pages.

There are way to many projects to be able to give good details on one web page.

Build Landscape Walls

The picture below shows a large wall built out of wall pavers. Terry started this wall before I met him. This is one of several landscape walls we have now.

After we got together the project proceeded, but with a very different ending than he had started out to build.

Add a Secret Garden to your Backyard

Notice the back fence in the picture above. You would not recognize it today. That fence cannot even been seen during summer months now.

We dislike the view beyond the privacy fence so much it inspired us to add more backyard privacy there.

That turned into an even bigger backyard project. We turned the entire area into a secret garden.

Here are a few links to give you some ideas-

The first link is a great project, build a secret garden that also provides more backyard privacy.

Add an Outdoor Kitchen

Another great project is an outdoor kitchen, you should get years of enjoyment in a quality outdoor kitchen, built into your backyard living space. Look here to get inspired and to determine what your needs are.

We don't have one yet, but an outdoor kitchen is in our future plans. I have been doing my homework!

We recently removed an old unused hot tub from our patio. The outdoor kitchen we intend to build will eventually will probably go in its place.

If you have an outdated eyesore that you no longer use. Put if on Craigslist. We had about 50 calls in one day about the hottub. We gave it away to the first person that had something to haul it on.

We never had to touch it. Remove your Craigslist ad as soon as the item is gone to avoid more calls.
