Well, summer is finally here and we all love spending as much time as possible in that beautiful space behind our house. Is that space beautiful?
If not, I have a few suggestions after the jump.
Many of us get to a point in life where staying at home and relaxing is better than an expensive vacation. And with all those home improvement shows (HGTV addict here!), turning your backyard into a true living space is not that hard or expensive.
For example I have a huge retainer wall, which after a while was a real eyesore. I decided to paint it this beautiful cobalt blue and I hung these lovely ceramic moons and suns which actually made it a wall filled with artwork. I also planted some bougainvillea and sure enough it now has a “wow” factor!
You can make that backyard like an extension of the living room with seating areas, lounging areas and lighting, so suddenly your home has another room without having to acquire a construction permit!
