Parking pad in the front yard
March 12, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I recently bought my first home, an 1883 brick bungalow in St. Louis. The house has been rehabbed and has everything I could ever want on the inside. It sits on a long narrow lot which borders a brick alley. At one point a large concrete 2 car parking pad had been poured in the front yard. There is a long bowling ally of a sidewalk that runs from the front gate to a small semi enclosed courtyard in front of the house. I'm wondering what to do with the space which to me has a French Quarter vibe to it..I don't really use the parking and I can't really dig it up so I'm not sure what to use it for. I do like the idea of somehow using it for entertaining. Suggestions would be welcomed.
