What we’ve done so far:
Power washed, built planters, & bar, bought a grill, installed our whole-house intercom/ music system, installed overhead lighting, outdoor curtains, power, & water. Really, the most significant thing we did was bring a water line to the deck from the basement- there is no way we’d be able to maintain our lush lovely garden without it (and a timed slow soaker hose).
What we plan to do:
Plant more annuals in the spring each year and keep grillin!
