How is it decorated? Is there anything else you'd like to add?

I'm moving in to a new house soon that has a pretty large back yard and I need some ideas for making it look nice. Right now I have a tiny back yard that only provides enough space for 2 chairs and a shed lol.

Post pics if you want!

we have about 1.5 acres for our backyard. half is grass and half is woods which then go far back which is then not our property.  that's hard to find in the 'burbs where most people have homes very close together. we don't decorate, just keep grass cut.

We live in a condo with a large wrap around third story deck. We do a lot of container gardening and lounging on it. This our view at sunrise. You can see the mountain range in the distance, the biggest selling point of our home, views out of every window! (btw I know this isnt what you were looking for I just wanted to share about small living :))

We have a deck and a garden at the edge of our woods, we aren't decorated.

Here is one of my container gardens, a vertical strawberry patch! We made it out of PVC pipe from home depot and chain. It works really well!

I have been collecting ideas on Pinterest because I am trying really hard to force myself to get out there and make my yard look nice this year.  I have a wonderful yard - it just needs lots of tlc.  Have fun with your new yard!
