Hands down the best part of our new house is our back patio. It’s so perfect for us. There is no grass to cut but there is enough space for Oliver to play, for some patio furniture and some plants. We were pretty excited to finally have some private outdoor living space to call our own. That’s why our priority is getting our outdoor living space functional and ready for the summer! (If it ever arrives, that is!)
Here’s what it looked like when we moved in:
I know it looks really barren and scrubby now but trust me, in a few weeks it will start to turn green and fill in a bit more.
Right now there’s a lot of nothing on the hill. We are planning to let this year be the year we let it grow and see what goes where. Kind of assess the lay of the land. Once things start to sprout up we want to start planting some succulents and some veggies. I don’t want to do rows like a regular veggie garden though. I want to plant Kale and Swiss Chard like they are plants. I mean they do look like shrubs, right? I really want to have a garden that doesn’t just look nice but has a purpose. We will see how it goes!
Here is a sneak peek of the patio set we picked up on the weekend. You’ll have to wait a little bit longer for a full reveal. There are a few more finishing touches to be done to the space before you can see the whole thing.
