Bare Bones

After building an addition on the back of our tiny house we found that our back yard was completely levelled. Because of the extensive work there is no lawn and we have cut down some trees. We have also built a garage that has taken up some of the space in the back. Basically we have a clean slate. Now we hope to create a restful, soothing haven that does not require a great deal of time to look after or cost a lot of money to maintain. Simple and beautiful......

We are not sure how to make this area beautiful so I think we will ponder and look at the space. We should get rid of the gate.
