I discussed in that publish that I’ve one principal objective with our new yard — LOW upkeep. I do not need a lot wooden we have now to stain each few years, I do not need pavers that we have now to weed on a regular basis…I simply need plain, fundamental concrete. 😉

However we at all times knew we might need extra of an out of doors house. We’re so fortunate as a result of this yard is a lot larger than our final one — we have now a lot house to work with! We waited on a patio till we knew precisely what we wished to do.
