We ‘ve been moved and settled in, for the most part, for 3 weeks today! It’s beautiful up here in Ponte Vedra, Fl. The community we live in is nice and quite, except for the construction. I love our backyard. It’s open and not too spacious, but enough. I like how not many of the neighbors have fences.
Not many fences?? Well,I guess that will be changing. We were only here a few days and our neighbor wants us to go in with them to split a fence. I don’t want a fence. I like having the open backyard. It seems that a lot of the neighbors are buying these solid white composite fencing. Then all you will see is white!
We had a fence in our our old home, that was small and open. Kinda like a composite railing than a fence. We had a wooden one around the yard and a white metal one around the pool. If I ever did a fence again I would want once like that. Remember my home improvement post? I just like the open feeling they give and not that closed in feeling of the fence all the neighbors are getting.
I do have to say that I would love to screen in and extend our patio, maybe with wooden composite decking? Not sure how the decking would look, I may just have to extend using concrete. That is one thing I really miss – our patio at the old house. It was a large screened in room with pretty white wicker furniture. I had just bought these cool green cushions for it. I sold them thinking I would not have room and I thought they would get ruined being exposed to more elements. Maybe if we expand one day I can get new furniture.
So what do you like better? An open backyard or closed in?
