So it may be a little late (in the season) for this, but …
… at least it’s now done!
Some of you may already know how I was working on my backyard to kind of make it a nice place to sit and chill. Part of it is working on the overall setup, and the other part is trying to just make it my “happy place.”
So over the last year or two, I’ve done my best to get the grass better. I’ve done the Scott’s turf program thing (though, I will admit, I’ve missed one or two times) and it really has helped. There’s a few spots that fight a bit, but it’s understandable in those spots. Especially in the backyard, where Harper runs and plays and we also get Harper’s friends over playing at times.
So I have no issues with that.
Earlier this summer, though, I had a patio put in. I then had a small pavilion put in. This past weekend, the lights were added.
Now, I don’t have power out there. However, I got a nice set of lights that run off USB power. So when I want to be out there, I can bring a USB power brick out with me. That does stink, at times, if I want to say turn the lights on via a timer, or leave them on longer etc. as you don’t really want to leave the power brick outside (and it needs to charge sometimes), but for now, it works just fine.
I have some battery lights I plan to wrap around the fence for Christmas time, and those can be on timers.
With family visiting this past weekend, so it was nice to sit out Friday night when it was decent out. The lights were awesome to have.
I’m not fully finished back there with the pavilion, but hopefully before the snow flies. I want to get my Blackstone out there, as well as some furniture builds. I just have to kind of see what direction I want to go with things and where they can go. I don’t want it to be too crowded! But, Harper’s Landing is definitely shaping up nicely.
Side note: We had a record as well Friday when there were seven dogs running, playing and having fun at Harper’s Landing!
