Backyard Makeover Sneak Peek

We’ve been working hard all summer on our backyard makeover.

We’re just about done!!!

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s about to be revealed…

But first, a couple BEFORE photos:


This is a photo of the house that was on the real estate advertisement…kinda scary and creepy huh?

backyard BEFORE

This is what it looked like just before summer, we’d already removed a lot of overgrown shrubs and trees, but it was still pretty bad.

Here are a few progress photos:

Removing the trashy overhang.

My view from inside the house with the overhang (kinda dark and limits my pretty view of the park).

Breaking Out Concrete by Creatively Living

The overhang is gone, the raised brick planters are gone, and the uneven concrete is being broke out.

Siding before and after comparison by Creatively Living

Out siding was getting really faded, so we decided we’d use a product called Wipe New ReColor to literally wipe the siding new again.

Can you see the difference in the Before and After?

Now onto the sneak peek of what’s yet to be revealed:

  1. Ohhh I love it!!! I have areas that need overhauling. I do think I’ll have my juniper spirals taken out. They got too big and ouch!!! They do not trim smoothly but like razor sharp pieces. Ugh. My area under my bedroom window was gorgeous and it’s now a mess. Overgrown and was pruned wrong. I think I could replant for under $100 and get the dwarf varieties that I thought I was getting!!! You’ve inspired me. But what was once so pretty now looks neglected. It doesn’t take long. So I’m excited to see your new space you’ll enjoy for years to come!!!
