CMT's Lawn Wars Reality TV Contest: Our Backyard Haven
Share This Entry:
  • Our Backyard Haven
    Rank :

    Our backyard is a surprise to some. We live in a typical ranch home surrounded by landscaping which includes a decorative block wall. The front of the house has great curb appeal, but the surprise is the backyard. When you walk to the back part of the property, there you will see our backyard haven. The patio is surrounded by beautiful flowering plants, the focal point being the fountain area. Looking further out to the back of the yard, you\'ll see a beautiful rock garden with 8 steps going to the very bottom of the yard. Along the way, you\'ll see many whimsical lawn ornaments, my favorite being \"Herman\'s Head\" who\'s hanging out with the Black-eyed Susans....and our old fountain that we transformed to a planter that sits beside our red bench...and more flowering plants, both perrenials and annuals. It truly is a summertime haven which we enjoy immensely. It takes alot of hard work but once everything is done and in place, there\'s nowhere we\'d rather be! That is, when the weather cooperates!
