With this hot summer of ours, and the lack of air conditioning in our pad, DIY Dan and I have been spending more and more time outside in our backyard. We have been working on some updates to our front garden (more deets on those soon, I promise!), but we haven’t really had the time or money to do anything with our backyard yet. It’s just a big patch of grass, which means we’re starting with a blank canvas. We had hoped to build a deck this summer, but with very few free weekends and our garage roof to do, I’m not sure when we will really get to it. Even if it’s not until September, I’m hoping we can bang it out so that it’s all set to go for next summer.
In the meantime, while I wait, I’ve been doing my usual thing of gathering inspiration. Here’s what I have been pinning on Pinterest lately.
What do you guys think? I’m hoping to build a deck big enough to have a lounge space and a dining space. Do you guys have a backyard that works really well? Have any tips or tricks you want to share? Built a deck or patio recently? I’m all ears!
Speaking of the outdoors, we’re planning on spending some good quality lake time this weekend! Hope you have some fun plans, too. Have a good one!
