Details, Details, Details….putting together a functional back patio

The heavy lifting for the back yard is over and done with…As previously recorded here, here and here.  I have moved on to pulling the details together to make the area functional.

First up – seating for the fire pit.  I found some wonderful low chairs from Lowe’s and purchased two.  I absolutely love the way they look.

DSCN1651I also purchased 2 Adirondack chairs from Amazon.  They needed to be put together – and I did the first one by myself….took a little while with Jane (First Officer of Destruction) around.  *Cough*…….could have taken me…..*cough*….2 hours…*cough*.  Dave and I teamed up on Saturday and put the other one together in 30 minutes.

DSCN1662 Next up – pulling my patio set from the wwwaaaayyyyyyy back of the shed.  I purchased this set at the end of the season last year and I am so excited to use it all summer.

DSCN1665Two smaller projects – moving the compost we have been ‘making’ to the raised garden (you can see in the above and below picture) and adding in solar lights to the fence.  Dave drilled holes into the 4×4 posts and placed solar lights down the length of the fence.

DSCN1664As a final note – we were able to use the fire pit.  It was a tad bit chilly, but we powered through and it finally feels like spring….even if it did snow the next day 🙂
