I was looking through some of my past projects from HGTV during my time as designer for the Carter Can show, and I ran upon one that I thought was fitting for the summer.
I really enjoyed this makeover of a row house back yard because it shows how, with the proper additions, you can maximize a small yard for major impact. The use of color ended up being even more spectacular than I had planned.
I LOVE this yard!
In fact, I'm using it as my inspiration for our own deck.
For those of you sprucing up your yards, I hope you can find some inspiration here.
I also found an online video of the episode, so that was double reason to share it with you. You can see the pictures, and then see how we created it. You won't want to miss the water feature on the garage wall!
And check out the color of that garage wall - love it!
Apple Green - you can never go wrong with Apple Green.
(I pulled this pic from my portfolio, hence the verbage, because it's the only one I can find after losing my pics a few weeks ago.)
Here's a tip to get a full screen viewing of the video: When the video screen comes up, mouse over it. You'll see to the top right there is a button that says "Pop Out". Click that and then maximize your screen, and you'll see it full screen.
WARNING: Pardon my strong southern twang. It is what it is, I can't help it. I know I sound edgy, but really, I'm sweet as pudding!
(Here is a post) I did about this project in the infancy of my blog. I just went to look at it again and it has a lot of close up pictures. Check it out.
I'd love to know what you think!
Feel free to share a link to pics of your own yard in the comments. If there are enough of them, I'll do a post and share the pictures with everyone.
