I can't remember how many times I've blogged about our backyard now, but here is the latest. It has come such a long way!! And we are pretty much done with all the infrastructure so now it's onto the planning, planting, and maintaining. Ignore the wire on the ground too - as that was part of a trellis I made that feel apart. It's so nice that the grass is in now and I can't wait to build and paint Max's little picnic table for the fall season that is around the corner. I can just see us now having our home school lessons on the picnic bench, on blankets, and the trampoline.
I can't even begin to tell you how glad I am that this part of the yard is done. It's been a work in progress since we started in November and we just now finished.... Well I still have lots of personality to add to it. As you can see from the base layer of one of the many murals to come along once it cools off. I also have lots of ideas for the stair way too.
Don't these stairs scream to be painted with some sort of fun phrase? I think so!
This image is so show the tiers... I'm thinking strawberry plants on the bottom tier? Or lettuce of some sort? The top will be for all kinds of salad goodies.
We just planted a bunch of corn and it's doing so much better than my last batch - good to know that you need to plant them close together and in patches
This is a side view of our back wall. Loving the planter beds that we put in and I totally stole the trellis idea from a friend of mine.
One of my goals with this backyard is to have some whimsy and corky... I"m slowly working my way to it - I couldn't pass up this door. Can't say Merrill loved it, but I sure do!
More checkers.... what can I say I love them! We will have this covered with mint come fall and every time you walk over it it will smell lovely
Can't wait to get this potato condo going in full swing... this is the first of several more to come
I love corky yard ornaments
Nothing really exciting about the side yard, but it is much cleaner than it was! Can't wait to get that back section cleaned up from all our left overs so we can eventually buy a camper and start getting out to the great outdoors more
