Backyard Makeover Before and After

When we moved into our house, our backyard was pretty bleak.

Here's a before shot:

Outdoor Oasis

We wanted to create an outdoor oasis in our southern home, a place for the whole family to enjoy all year long.

How we started before our backyard makeover:  The backyard was a mess, with a fire pit and a brick wall that felt random and unnattractive. 

First step: find inspiration

We looked all over for inspiration on how to create our backyard oasis, and found so many gorgeous examples.

To begin, we poured a concrete patio to match the brick retaining wall and help it look intentional and cohesive.

Next, we worked to flatten the area next to the patio for our pool.
