Can I tell you all how troubled I've been thinking of how I'm going to finish this back patio?
We have so many rules. I've decided to dump the wood fence and opt for black iron.
Stay with me here. The reason behind the decision is the green privet hedge that will grow on the inside and also act as a privacy wall. The tricky part is the front door. I plan on extending the fence along the front, and adding a white arbor and gate. I think the image below gives a good idea of the direction I'd like to take. Keep in mind that my goal for this little jewel of a home is to make everything look bigger and better than it is. Done with style and good choices.
Below is a picture walking up the the front door.
Phase one, done. Added a window and lighting, new walkway,
relocated the air conditioning and added a custom cover, poured a new patio, added
new doors and hardware.
When you arrive at the front door, over to the left is where I see an arbor and
fence. The fence will be extended along the the front of the walkway.
It will stop where the concrete pad is.
At least that's my plan...
Along the back I need to add a green wall. Across the fireplace I see another
arbor and gate. Growing up the fireplace I'd like to add a
vine to add height. Bigger, and more, by good choices.
The ground will be a natural decomposed granite.
Ok here's where it gets fun.
The image below is what I think I'd like to place where
I have a stucco wall to the right of the front door.
Adding height, and help defining style.
You can see it in the picture above on the very right.
I love the mill work on the image below. I'd like to make sure that I have detail.
So far that's what's on my mind. The siding and paint have been
scheduled for mid March. I'm iffy with the latest weather forecast.
El Nino is scheduled to be strong in February and March.
Oh well. Schedule and wait and see.
Once that's done I will feel like I've made real progress.
I will be able to landscape and see my vision come to life.
That's the best part.
As always, thank you for stopping by and checking in!
