What about the backyard?
All this talk about the grass in the front yard, what about the backyard? This is the yard I see as most beneficial, because that is where I reside. That’s where my dog house is and my personal digging area. Now you may have all the landscaping done in the back, and that little bit of grass accenting the main living area. How about taking out the grass? This would be a great way to add more space to your existing patio area. Try a decomposed granite courtyard area, a flagstone patio area with a fire pit, or a planted area accented with mexican pebbles. You can make it look good for me with just a bit of effort. It’s time to get ready for that Memorial Day celebration or summer backyard BBQ. Happy digging!
