{ Backyard demo - 2014 }

Summertime in Chicago is here! Unfortunately our backyard is a disaster.
Here are some photos of the backyard taken about 4 weeks ago. I have done a little work in the last few days. Updates will be posted later.

The pavers were really uneven, so we pulled them up and will try to level things out before reusing.

I would like to do something with the retaining wall to make it less of an eyesore. It needs to be something really low budget. The wall has been cleaned with a couple of different concrete and mortar cleaners, but still is showing spots of a burgundy color.

The chainlink fence is ugly, but it must stay. We somehow need to make it less ugly.

One big thing the yard needs is shade! Our little tent/ canopy died. A shade sail(s) would be awesome.

Off to enjoy the sunshine and do a little yard work.
