How to Make Your Dream Backyard Garden and Patio

by Deborah Cruz

Wondering how to get your dream backyard garden and patio? The weather is warming up, the sun is shining and I am having dreams of sitting on my back deck, watching the girls play with their friends while I finally put that margarita machine to use with my friends.

My backyard garden and patio are much like my house, a fixer-upper. Luckily, the Big Guy doesn’t shy away from DIY home renovations and I have lots of great ideas. This is why we work so well together.

Currently, our backyard garden and patio are good. The grass is lush, the firepit is welcoming and the deck is clean. We have lots of shade and it’s just a really comfortable space to be in. However, there is no covering on the deck ( we built a pergola and hung drapes at our previous house) and that means no privacy which is a slight issue when the neighborhood walking paths run parallel to your backyard.

What would your dream backyard garden and patio look like?

My dream backyard garden and patio would include some kind of coverage and protection from the weather, as well as, some privacy. I’d like something that allowed us to be outside while protected from the mosquitos as well if I’m being honest. I’d like my outdoor living space to be an extension of our indoor living space. I’d like it to be fun, functional and comfortable but stylish.

I love the idea of globe string lights hung throughout the yard for ambiance. Perhaps some new Adirondack chairs around the fire pit. They make me nostalgic of our summers in Ogunquit and truly that is my happy place. Definitely, need a grill for cooking outdoors. I love the taste of chargrilled food in the summertime. Ample seating for those friends of mine that I plan on hosting for margaritas.

If I’m really dreaming big, a hot tub with all the jets would be a great addition to our family’s yard. We all have muscle aches; between the girls and ballet and the Big Guy and I with all the old age and broken bones and whatnot, a hot tub is a must. I know a hot tub sounds ultra retro but I promise we won’t be getting any lava lamps or water beds any time soon.

Here are a few items on my wishlist to make my dream backyard garden and patio a reality.
