I’ve been thinking about the outdoor projects that I need to get done and dreaming about those that I’d like to work on “someday”.
On my list of “got to do’s” is fix up the front porch & fix our broken concrete walkway & steps that run from the sidewalk to the house (here’s a pic of the sad looking front porch and the walkway. And look…a neighbor has come over for a visit):
And a couple of other things that I need to get done are: get a new mailbox & post, add some type of lighting to the driveway side of the house, & add an outdoor spigot.
On my list of “want to do’s” is to build a patio/courtyard off of my dining room with walkways leading to the front of the house and to the back of the house. Here are some pics of my absolute FAVORITE:
(You can go to Patio Tour from Remodeling Center.com: for more information on this patio.)
I LOVE THIS!!! This was designed by Landscape architect James Furr. A 7-foot-high fence lines the neighbor's driveway, which I DEFINITELY NEED! At the rear of the courtyard, latticework and a gate open to the backyard. LOVELY!!
Here’s a close up pic of this patio. Love the raised flower beds and the addition of the water feature:
look at all the pretty flowers:
LOVE LOVE LOVE the mortared flagstone path:
These pics are definitely going into my “home improvement ideas” binder. I know that our side yard could never look like as beautiful as this….but it doesn’t hurt to dream.
OK…back to the things that NEED to get done. Catch ya later!
