What is your backyard crying out for?

Luke BuckleJuly 24, 2014
Some people let their grass grow too long, or their fence is falling down.

My backyard has too much going on - some lawn, a shed, a vegetable patch, two ponds... I love it but it needs someone to come in and remove some things so it has a focal point, and some space where I can sit and breathe.

We live in an apartment, so a 'yard' per se, would be just super... We have actually toyed with the idea of putting down some faux grass on our balcony to give it more of a green feel, but haven't take the plunge thus far

I agree with Tony, any yard would be welcome. Maybe get a dog? that would be an excellent garden focal point, I hear they are also excellent at helping to aerate grass :)

Live in a condo so no back yard. However, my parents place needs plants to screen the view of the neighbor's pile of junk in their back yard, but nothing that will get into the chain link fence or be so close to it that it would be difficult to paint every 2 - 3 years.

A good clean-up that stays cleaned up. I live with a family of eight that needs plenty of storage room -- one garage already full, so anything that can take the conditions outside until it becomes useful stays outside. Oh dear.

A Backyard! We only have a courtyard and I miss actually having our own grass lawn for the kids to play on. We do have a park only a 2 min walk away which we knew was convenient but it doesn't replace the safety of fun outdoor space on your own lot
