Living Spaces: Backyard Finalist #5

Nine Reasons Why My Backyard Should Be Selected:

  1. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">First and foremost this would be the only opportunity that I would have to give my backyard a facelift because it would be years before we would be able to afford this.

  2. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">Because our family loves outdoor nature it would be such an enjoyment to have a backyard environment for entertaining family and friends or just simply for our enjoyment.

  3. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">My desire would be to have a small section fenced in for my flowers. We live out in the country where dogs roam. Needless to say, they tear up my flower beds. This is very frustrating after I have worked so hard (blood, sweat, and tears).

  4. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">I used to work in my yard all the time, but when the dogs tear flower beds up, poop on the sidewalk, etc., you lose motivation, and I would like to regain that back.

  5. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">Working out in the yard is great therapy for my physically and mentally. If I had a section that was fenced in, I could focus on maintaining it.

  6. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">It seems I have emphasized that I want a section of the yard fenced off, but if that would not be possible, any kind of makeover would be greatly appreciated. I have always heard when you live in the city you have a fence to keep pets in, and when you live in the country, you have a fence to keep pets or animals out. I have found that to be very true.

  7. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">We have a small covered back porch that needs some personality. With professional talent and
    enthusiasm, this porch could become the center of a new backyard makeover.

  8. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">When I tell people that I am entering the backyard makeover, they seem to think that would not happen because we are middle-class and this is for people that are less fortunate. I disagree. We are homebodies and have lived at our residence for 13 years. We would just like to improve our house that we have made aHome.

  9. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">Last, but not least, what more could you ask for after a stressful day at work [than] to go home and relax in your own backyard with great enjoyment, thanks to a backyard makeover.
