DIY Firepit, Patio, and Backyard
I am SO excited to finally get to show you guys the close to final product on our HUGE DIY backyard project. If you have been following me for the last 14 weeks you will know that this is how long this project has lasted for us. I can honestly say it was a TON of work and the hardest project we have ever done by ourselves (well with the help of our awesome family!!!) but so worth it in the long run. We went from having no backyard (unless you count 12 foot bushes and a forest behind that) to a gorgeous, sodded space with a fire pit and patio!
Here are some photos of our most recent progress:
In this photo we have the wall, fire pit, and patio completed and sod laid
Here is another pre-mulch and pre-finished wall shot of the backyard.
Here is another view...
Here is a picture out the back door before we made our grill pad and moved our grill..
And our other side yard...
And the picture that makes me the happiest of all (my chair cushions are still inside, sorry!)...
As you can see we still have work to do with landscaping...we need plants and pine straw pretty badly but really that is the fun part compared to all the hard work we have done to make this yard. We are absolutely in love with our new space and can't wait to get it decorated so we can start hosting those backyard summer parties!
If you want to know why I'm so proud check out the before pictures.
My encouragement? We did this project totally by ourselves and you can, too! Yes, it will be a lot of hard work (you better be ready to sweat), and yes it will take a while, but you can do it!
