For starters, I'm participating in Home Depot's Patio Style Challenge this year!
I participated in their first DIY Challenge last fall and I was so excited when they asked me to participate in their Style Challenge this spring! I've watched the Patio Style Challenge makeovers from afar for a long time and have always wanted to join in and now I finally get to! :)
We'll be making over our back patio + a little more for the challenge.
I can't share the full reveal with you just yet (soon, I promise!) but I thought I'd share some sneak peeks with you in the mean time. I've been sharing them on Instagram over the past few weeks so if you're not following me, you're missing out on future sneak peeks!
Anyway, the biggest change we made to our yard was adding AstroTurf!
I know, I know – you're probably thinking of the awful neon green carpet like "grass" AstroTurf is typically associated with but I promise you that the turf we had installed is NOTHING like the ugly old stuff! It's so realistic that it fools everyone who sees it!
We also laid some giant pavers down. I absolutely love the contrast between the white marble chip "grout" and the cement pavers!
I played with some pretty succulents:
And did a little plant shopping:
I also mingled with a butterfly who happened to stop by and check out our new space!
I can't wait for you to (virtually) stop by and check it out too! :)
