Backyard help!

Hello everyone!

i am new here. 
My husband and I brought a house early this year and slowly doing inside Reno’s. 

We are at loss as to what we can do with our backyard. The pool was filled in prior to us buying my husband would like some sort of sunken fire pit area. 
where the rocks and side shrubs are we would like to do a raised garden bed with timber sleepers.

note: we have removed two of the back sheds and some of the green trees at the front of this picture. Any help- ideas are so welcome (:

Hey Tmariani

Your space has lots of potential! I'd suggest a hedge along your fences to frame the yard in front of it - we're in Queensland and have used murayas with great success. That would also help with disguising the difference in fence colour.

Good luck :smile:

Hi @Tmariani,

 

Congrats on the new house. It's great that you have been busy making it yours with the reno work inside. We're looking forward to seeing what you have done. And I'm sure the community can assist with inspiration for the backyard. We have amazing members sharing advice and inspiration every day.

 

These resources might be a good starting point:

I'd start with the fences first. @ProjectPete has shared how he used timber cladding on his Colorbond fences to make them look absolutely stunning - definitely check that out. Are you also thinking about a timber deck?
