Backyard Makeover Begins

We’ve been planning on fixing up the backyard at the new house since the day we moved in.  Our last house had such a great backyard and was one of the main reasons we bought it.  The new house has a large yard but it is mostly dirt.

A blank canvas is nice but I feel like there are too many options to choose from and I have a hard time deciding.  What we did decide was that we needed more cement for riding bikes and for a half-court basketball court.  Also, cement is pretty low maintenance.  So, that’s what we did.  We put in cement and a few trees. The rest is still a little “up in the air”
