I know I have mentioned our backyard a few times in the past but I thought it was time I shared a few photos to show you exactly how much work there is to do out there. Brace yourself...
This raised bed is full of overgrown weeds and is quite a while away from producing vegetables, as you can clearly see! Unfortunately the exterior of our home and the landscaping is sadly neglected at the moment. There is a LOT of work to do outside and our focus has really been on the inside.
Yes, it is a frightful mess and there will be many hours (more like months or even years!) ahead of us to get this tidied up. I have lots of ideas for this area including building large retaining walls, levelling out the yard to create a flat grassed area (did I mention a daybed by the pool?) and building new fences.
These are not realistic ideas given our budget (or lack thereof) so it seems far more likely that a tidy up will be on the agenda once we finish working inside. (Side note: Yes, I am highly embarrased by these photos but I'm putting them out there anyway...maybe the shame will motivate me! lol). :-)
