Because I Promised

I promised you before and after pictures of my backyard and if you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw these but, if not, here they are!


I actually grew up in this house and once upon a time it didn't look THAT bad but by the time my husband and I bought it, it had been neglected and looked pretty bad...as you can see.

This one's my favorite. It looks so completely different! See that resort look I was going for?

 This was a before the before picture. We used to have a deck but it was falling to pieces.

I'm so bummed that we didn't have a before shot from this angle because over where the fire pit and my husband's shop is was a huge pile of branches and logs and just a big ol' mess!

And one shot at night because the lights are my favorite part!

It was a lot of work and took way too long to finish but I'm so glad it's done now. I spend most of my afternoons out by my pool reading! I love how low maintenance the yard is because the pool, while fun, is NOT low maintenance so every little bit helps.

Thanks for letting me show it off!

  4. The transformation is incredible. It must be really satisfying getting it back in shape, and restoring some of its former glory from when you previously lived there.

  6. Backyard pools are nice, but they are TONS of work! Even with a weekly pool service, we still spent a lot of time on ours.

    Your makeover turned out so well. Thanks for the sharing the before and after pics!

    1. Right? They’re so nice but lots of maintenance and I don’t even have a hot pool boy to ogle. 😉

  7. I've been waiting on this post, lol. I wanted to see all the before and after pictures! I am LOVING the entire thing, especially all the lights. It's such a drastic change, and I can see why you would want to spend all of your time out there. I feel like I'd hang out outside even during the winter. ;)

    1. Well, my landscaper brother did a lot of it. We did the fences the pool and the furniture, plants, lights etc. but he did the concrete and lawn.
