In need of back yard ideas..
We purchased a house 2 yrs ago with two large front and back yards. There are trees bordering both front and back yards. There is no fence and there is a 40-50 ft distance between neighbors on either side. A new development recently came up in the back, that completely ruined the little privacy we already had.
In the back we have a slightly elevated deck and large concrete slab (maybe put in for future construction?!). The two are separated by a stone walkway w/flower bed. There is a small fenced in vegetable garden on the back property line.
- Install privacy fence along the back property line.
- We hate the bare concrete slab. One suggestion is to install lattice panels around the perimeter of the area with an entrance connecting to the deck and the back yard. We've never seen an actual example of this so we are a bit hesitant. Growing plants around this area is also a thought. We plan on using this area for entertaining.
- Since the back yard is bare lawn we're considering evergreens along the deck.
What do u think of our thoughts? We have zero privacy and lots of lawn and I'm not a fan of lawn. Any other suggestions..I can post pics if thats needed.
