We recently had foundation work done on our old home which left the side yard a complete mess. My husband suggested I do a mock-up for my vision of how I would like this area to look. I have been having so much FUN creating this new vision on my iPad with Apple Pencil that I want to do it for all sorts of home improvement projects!  This was created yesterday afternoon sitting on the front porch so I was able to take photos of existing plants, walkways, etc... to help build this vision. Some things I have added from other resources like the window boxes, tin roof on garage, plantings against the deck wall and fantastic artwork by Tex Crawford. It’s in no way perfect but it gives a good idea of what I would like to do. I hope the animated GIF idea works here. It doesn’t seems to transfer properly in some programs like FB Instant Messenger so I am adding the still shots for comparison.

Now, back to rethinking exterior paint colors for porch floors, doors and ceilings. The colors I picked turned out to be way too bright for my liking.
