When it comes to home improvement, the only limit is your own imagination. We’ve seen countless stories of dramatic home renovation and landscaping projects that inspire with their creativity and thoughtfulness, but the one you’re about to see definitely takes the cake. You simply won’t believe the amazing transformation his back yard went through.
We’ll kick things off by taking a look at his lifeless and boring yard, and the unique steps he took to transform it into the crown jewel of his homestead. Slide #8 will give you a pretty good idea of the scope of his project, and by slide #2, you won’t believe you’re even looking at the same yard!
#12 The Beginning
The yard was not anything to write home about at the beginning of the transformation process. The grass was very sparse and was even dead in various sections of the yard. The family had their work cut out for them, but to be honest, any change at all would have been an improvement.
Despite the pretty bad shape the yard was in at this point, it had some potential. This aerial shot shows the backyard as a whole. It had a large fence on one side, and a patio on the other side. While it would take some hard work, the potential was there, and it would soon be realized.
#10 The Structure Being Created
The plan was for a pond to go right in the middle of the backyard and for that, the family hired a back hoe to get the job done easier. Once the hole was dug up, you can get a better look at the plans for the backyard. Now that all of the groundwork has been done, they can get ready to build.
#9 Family Affair
But they didn’t only use hired hands to fix up their backyard — quite the opposite, actually. Everyone in the family did their part to help the process along. It not only helped the work get done faster, but also allowed for some fantastic family bonding as they all shared in this cool experience.
#8 Setting the Felt
Now that the big hole was completely dug and shaped in the correct way, we can really see the start of this very cool swimming hole. Once it was dug, the felt was laid down and secured, which made the hole begin to look like the pond which would soon be the focal point of this amazing backyard.
