Before and after: Stone Patio (work in progress)



After



I took some images last week of my patio area and the pictures looked so bad I didn't want to show you. But yesterday I added some rocks, dirt, mulch and removed some old bushes. It's looking so much better now, I can't wait to get a patio set!

That water in the back is my vernal pond, which is currently home to hundreds of mating frogs and one lonely mallard duck.

Man, that looks nice! I like the water in the background. Water always gives a nice feel to a nicely designed home like yours. Have you made a decision on the style of patio furniture you want? Are you looking for any specific style, or just shopping around?

This is such a serene and tranquil outdoor environment. What a great place to meditate and take in nature!

You should get those bullet planters that are up on Boston Craigslist! They would look awesome out there!
