Help us plan our backyard oasis
My wife and I have just purchased a new house. Our move in date is not for a bit but we would like to start planning/get ideas of how to make the backyard more of what we were dreaming of when we bought a new home .
Pictures will be in the next post.
The first thing we plan to do is remove the tree to left of deck and the one to the right of the house that is growing over the house.
When viewing the home, we thought the deck was a tear down, but our home inspector states that if we added back fill around the sono tubes that it would keep it from shifting anymore. So keeping the deck is an option.
The pink shed is a teardown, we don't plan to do that immediately though.
We would like the backyard to be as flat as possible, and we would prefer a nice view from the basement windows. The septic is located about 5 feet from the basement door so we will need to plan around that. We would like somewhere to put a bbq, patio table, and then some patio furniture (we have a love seat + 2 single chairs) the current deck is not big enough for this. We want a nice big vegetable garden and a fire pit.
We have not put a budget on this yet, because we aren't quite sure what can be done. If an amazing idea is presented that requires a new deck/patio area to be installed, we have no issues spending 20k+ to get this done or breaking it up over a couple years.
Let's hear some suggestions!
