We have neglected the backyard over the Winter months with the weeds getting out of control and growing so high we couldn't find Lexi's toys anymore! Luckily, Sunday was a gorgeous sunny Spring day and perfect to be outdoors so we mowed and weeded the backyard and cleared out a heap of old timber and materials from the kitchen renovation and old windows from the french doors project into a big skip bin.
The old lattice and brushwood fence around the edge of the patio had a bit of a beating with the Winter weather and it was long overdue to be pulled down ... before it fell down!

|We never use this side of the backyard we've been storing all the building materials from the renovations here|
and need to order another builders skip bin to get rid of the tiles and bricks etc
|With the patio fence removed our backyard looks so much bigger|
We are going to put a new fence up for privacy and to give some protection from the weather, it's just deciding what type of fence. I really like Dear Genevieve's idea for covering an outdoor railing in fabric and we will probably do something similar with shade cloth.
I'm hoping Lexi has grown out of her chewing my pot plants faze so I can plant some pretty flowering pots and make the patio look a bit more appealing. Fairy lights, lanterns and outdoor decor are also on my wish list to get the patio looking good for some Spring entertaining.
How have you been enjoying the Spring weather?
