Working on the backyard

We decided to turn our attention to the backyard, finally! Given how close our neighbors are on one side, we wanted to add some privacy. So, we got several Areca palms installed, plus a mature coconut palm, plus sod.  The transformation is amazing!

As a refresher, this is what the backyard looked like when we first bought the house:

This is what it looked like after we removed the old carport, added a privacy fence and did some (very) minor landscaping:

And this is after we had the new trees and sod installed:

Up next we will be adding white rocks in the ‘beds’ around the trees and turning the gazebo into a tropical tiki bar! Stay tuned 🙂
