The one thing that sold us on our new house was the sizable backyard. It wasn’t in the best shape at the time but it had a spectacular oak tree and mature redwood, which is all we needed as jumpstart to our outdoor project. And now with the summer months quickly approaching, it’s time to put this project into high gear. Here’s a roundup of some outdoor spaces I’m drawing inspiration from. Stay tuned for updates on our progress!
