We moved into our newly built house a few years ago and to say our backyard was sad is an understatement. There was nothing back there except a small deck. Over the last few years we've worked in sections to make our backyard into a place we love spending time in. The yard is large so we have lots of seating that encourages people to mingle, a new patio with a fireplace, a water feature and even a bocce ball court! We saved money by painting our existing furniture and adding colorful cushions. Next year we plan on adding more landscaping including some large shade trees and possibly a outdoor movie theatre! We may never leave!!!
