The patio and garden before.The pergola sitting got to go off as it had been hit by termites, once taken down we have more space there and we recycled the lattice screens from the pergola.

The Frontyardigans - Patio and Garden Makeover
How to have BBQ area at the front yard? exclaimed Maklang over the phone to mama. Yeap, normally people have their BBQ area at the backyard but we have a small backyard ,mama has to take advantage of our long front yard as our terrace house is 22 x 100.It is not impossible to have BBQ at the terrace house and it is okay to have it at the front yard as long as you do it properly.Mama has seen many in the magazines especially houses in Europe as Americans, they are pure backyardigans:)With a small budget and a little bit of creativity and research you can have a cosy patio with nice BBQ area, plan you project properly and try to recycle as much possible.It is always nice to have makeover at your house but when it involves renovation especially if there is painting works the mess is horrible! Your birthday is coming up tomorrow and this year mama decided to have a very small and close celebration at home only(jimat mode actually..haaa..haaa). Since the workers completed their work yesterday only, mama had to clean the messy area last nite until 12.30 am, it was a pure buruh work,had to dig the ground to take out pebbles,angkat the batu,cabut the rumput,move all the big old pots etc.Having said that, it always worth it when you see the result and satisfaction is maximum when you do it with your own hands.Okay girls peek a boo at the makeover,let's see before and after.
