Backyard- Post Makeover
Say Hello to our favorite part of this house!
This view is 70% of the reason we took a chance on this 1980's gem! That's the 10th green in the distance in front of our gorgeous lake. Imagine sitting here sipping a mimosa on a beautiful Spring or Fall morning. (I'm imagining it too because we have yet to do it ourselves after a whole year, but our intentions are SO good!)
As you'll see in the BEFORE photo, the backyard footprint was originally much smaller than what we expanded it to. An official land survey and some online property records research revealed that our neighbors had hardscaped and landscaped right over our property line and we had some real estate to reclaim. (In their defense, they trusted a former friend (not Pro) to do the work and he eyeballed where he thought he property lines were) HIRE PROFESSIONALS WHEN YOU NEED TO, PEOPLE.
