Something that this state of lock-down and isolation has made apparent is that we are renewing our relationships with the great outdoors. I live adjacent to a park with a 3 mile walking trail; where there used to be the occasional walker, runner or bicyclist, now it has a constant stream of masked singles, couples, families, and (unmasked) dogs taking advantage of the paved trail.
My husband and I have spent untold hours since this began, pulling weeds, raking leaves, transplanting bulbs and just enjoying the feeling of being free, even if the freedom only extends to our own backyard.
COVID-19 aside, its Spring, which means Summer isn't far behind. And while we may be stuck, secure in our own homes, our imaginations can go anywhere they want. So why not use this time to plan your best backyard ever?
There are big changes that can be made; landscaping, building a deck, laying pavers, making pathways, digging a koi pond. There are online design tools that allow you to lay out these changes and see how they will actually look. Check out the relatively easy to use iscapit.
Sometimes the change might just be that big thing you've been meaning to get for your kids, your grandkids, your wife, your husband, yourself. This might be a refreshing swimming pool, a state of the art outdoor kitchen, a perfect pergola, a jaw-dropping swing set, a gorgeous new patio furniture set, or a grill that will be the envy of every neighbor.
