During the Covid-19 pandemic, everyone has been spending a lot more time at home with family, working, and schooling from home.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve started making a list of things around the house that I’ve been meaning to do, but for one reason or another, I just haven’t gotten to yet.
You know, those little things that are annoying but aren’t bad enough to actually need fixing.
One of those things is the landscaping. When we moved in, a lot of the perennials were overgrown and in need of a lot of love. It’s been three years, and they’re still in that state!
As hard as COVID-19 has been for everyone, I am thankful it’s given me the time and motivation to get a couple of things checked off my list.
Now that they’re done, I’m seeing my yard from a new perspective. I’m also daydreaming about what else we could do in the yard to make it more comfortable and usable.
Starting your next project during COVID-19
We’ve been spending all of our extra time outside lately, enjoying the sun and warmer weather. It’s gotten me thinking about how we can make our space work for us in the long term.
Here are a couple of things I’ve been thinking about.
Adding a seating and dining area
While my toddler loves having a picnic in the grass, I know my parents are not huge fans of eating supper on a blanket. Doesn’t a nice patio or deck off the kitchen door sound perfect for summer grilling and eating outside?
Adding a firepit
Our property is big enough that there is plenty of space for a fire pit and seating around it. I can’t think of a better way to spend summer nights than around a fire with friends and family.
I love browsing through all the nursery plants in the spring. But professionals are much more familiar with plants and can create designs that would take me ages to come up with. When I have a specific idea in mind, I always work with a professional to turn my idea into reality.
