sitting area plopped in the middle of nowhere (backyard)
Ok...we don't have a city lot...we live in the township, just outside of the city...so luckily we are still enjoying a little bit of "country living" for now. We have a small farmette...and behind the house is a woods and pond. The back yard is long and somewhat narrow compared to its length...because of the treeline/pond.
But come spring...it's my little piece of heaven, when the frogs wake up, and the geese return, and we have a Great Blue Heron who returns every year to spend the summer on our pond.
I want to create just a little sitting area in the back yard near the water's edge....just to sit. have it look relatively natural...maybe make some sort of sitting bench with logs-type thing (anyone have pics of something they've done?), maybe throw in a couple of tiki torches...I dunno. Maybe a couple benches....and/or a primitive fire pit...who knows. But, something that matches the natural feel of that area.
Anyone made any home-made (amateurs!!) furniture for the back yard using trees/logs who can share pics?
And does anyone think this would look goofy? I mean...it would be stuck there in th emiddle of nowhere...no path to it...no landscape around it....really, my back yard is not landscaped much at all. I do have a couple hostas along that treeline down there...and could add more. But...I like to enjoy the area.
I have a video, of just what I enjoy...the sound of the frogs, and the geese...I don't know if I can embed one here, I will try. The frogs get so loud, if the window's open, and I'm in my house, and on the phone, people on the other end hear them. It's truly amazing! And, in another month...I should start hearing them. I can hardly wait!
Nope, it won't let me. I'll try a link instead...if you can see/hear it, I was standing in my dining room when I filmed this!
