Our main goal was to have a significant water feature installed to block some of the road noise behind our house.
We succeeded! The water falls don't block out all the noise, but they're a very nice distraction. We're really enjoying it.
Another nice feature to our new backyard is the covered deck.
I love sitting out here with coffee in the morning.
This is the other side of the yard. Very little grass to maintain, but lots of entertaining space.
We also included a fire pit for summer s'mores and chilly evenings.
And, my attempt at a garden. A very small garden, but it's a start. I'm anxious to see if I can do it, and if this is a good location for growing. I'm trying to grow cherry tomatoes, peppers and strawberries (only 3 strawberries because I planted late ~ maybe next year).
And, at dusk, a little landscape lighting. We've never had the lights....I like 'em!
Looking forward to some outdoor fun this week with the holiday!
Happy 4th of July ~
