Backyard Renovation!

I am completely over my backyard right now. It is still the exact same way that it was when we bought the house two years and that means BORING! I want to completely gut it and start from scratch. Thankfully my grandparents are PROS at gardening and all things outdoors when it comes to a house. They do all their own yards in all the houses they have owned. Here are some of my inspiration pics that I'm obsessing over. I want lots and lots of greenery and definitely a fire pit!

Obsessed with all the hydrangeas

Such a cozy fire pit

I want sit here sipping champagne :)

I must have stone tiles with grass in between them like this in my backyard for sure!

Great use of a small space

A grand fireplace

Most stone and grass work

I love that this looks like a room from inside a home but outside!!!

Eclectic feel

Wish I could put french doors in my house

MUST paint our side gate a bright fun color

Large seating area for fun entertaining and hanging out with friends

Summer fun and lots of green

Which ones are you favs? I don't have a ton of space but enough to do some cute stuff with it!

  1. The fifth picture should definitely be your first option. It's like Taj Mahal in full American color. It's exquisite and the grass-bordered patios are just lovely. If you're planning to use the existing shubbery around your house, a creative landscaping job would definitely make your backyard look something like this, or even better.
