Project: Tidy and spruce the patio
The goal this week: get flowers planted in pots around the patio and generally spruce it up. We use the patio a lot during the summer for dinner and after-baby’s-bedtime drinks. It hasn’t gotten a ton of attention yet other than the new border shrubs, and I want to add some potted plants and flowers and just generally clean it up.
The challenge here is that the small breezeway porch that borders the patio is under-construction, as Pat has taken down the ugly louvres that have been there for 50 years and is rebuilding/replacing the three sides.
The patio has come a long way since we moved in, when it was half-asphalt (terrible bumpy broken many-layered asphalt) and half poorly-laid flagstone. Once the porch is done we’ll have completed all the major work we envisioned for this area of our yard. Almost there!
