I am guessing the first few years of us being new home owners and having a yard for the first time was fun for the neighbors to watch. Though tiring, the yard was also fun for us to work on. I was not into grilling yet, but we were into nights around a campfire, so one of our first outdoor projects was to build a fire pit. Cool, huh?
The next yard art is in the front yard. It was also known as Stump Henge.
Those stumps lasted at least 10 years before they broke down, there are still some ruins there that look kinda cool. Below is a better overall early shot of our front yard under the pine tree. See if you can spot how we used the picnic table we got from some other neighbors (shown in the fire pit photo above).
Some of our furniture fixer uppers weren't so cost effective as the bench around the pine tree, which was free. For example, this other bench (below) we got at a garage sale for $5. But then the paint and the 2x4s we bought to create leg supports cost so much that we could have just bought a new outdoor bench instead.
Hope you liked the art tour. When I figure out what's next I'll let ya know.
Type at ya later,
