Backyard Inspiration...

Let's just say we have projects going on all over our yard, yet none of them are complete!! 
 I'm feeling the anxiety...
The first project was started over a month ago! 
We have a large side yard that is never used, so we are going to move the fence flush with the house & make that space part of  the backyard.
It has turned into a bigger project than we anticipated & we are now going to level the whole trampoline area so it's flush with the playset.  It will also make it so the trampoline will sit level and will be flush with the grass.

We are hoping it will look something like this...
Backyard Play Area
Backyard Landscaping
Arcadia Design Group
Centennial, CO

Next, we are dealing with broken sprinklers & it looks like a pipe broke under the cement of our RV pad!  :(

Then our front flower bed has been infested with this vine that strangles all of the other plants & spreads everywhere, so we have started digging all of that out!  

So needless to say....I needed some inspiration!
I would love to connect the play set area & grassy trampoline area with some type of arbor...
Utah backyard playgrounds, Trampolines in the ground, Rock water feature play rocks, Basketball courts, Swings, Play rocks and natural gas fire pits in Utah
I love the rock pathway with the fire pit too!

I wish we had more space in our yard to do this....

Or this...
I love this..awesome firepit and landscape design!

Well I guess it's now time to quit dreaming & actually get something done!!
Our kids put together all of their allowance money last summer & bought the trampoline...Let's hope there dream becomes a reality before THIS summer is over!
Do you have any frustrating projects you are hoping to finish?

  1. “…the play set area & grassy trampoline area with some type of arbor...” – What a great idea to have. And in my opinion, it’s perfect for your backyard since it's large enough to accommodate a play set area. Once this is done, I’m sure the kids will spend more time in here. How is it, by the way?

  2. The sample pictures look amazing, and I'm pretty sure your backyard would look much better now with the playset. I hope you had it integrated with the backyard landscaping, for a more wholesome look. I'm hope to see their current statuts, so please do update us on how you backyard looks this year!
