Our courtyard garden makeover starts next week (weather permitting - fingers crossed) and we can't wait!  Here are some before photos. It's currently such a drab, yucky space, so bad in-fact that no one wants to go out there.





We took out the huge murraya hedge that was separating the courtyard into two sections and cutting out a lot of much needed light. We've had a couple of the skinny and very dead gum trees removed and even just doing this has really opened up the space. Soon we will have a lovely outdoor room (sans old dated red pergola) - a deck,  some turf and lots of greenery...it will be oh so loverly!! 

So looking forward to this space being turned into something much more usable and aesthetic...and puppy friendly! Yes, yes...puppy! Our long awaited for puppy will be arriving very soon...so much excitement happening around here : ) 

More photos to come after the backyard blitz!

I literally cannot wait to see the after shots of this makeover Alison.
THIS right here is what I am hanging out to do to our courtyard. It has SO much potential, just needs to be stripped back and rebuilt. Can't wait til that happens.
Enjoy making your own little piece of paradise xo
