Our new house has a pretty great yard, with a lot of sun and shade. It’s almost a quarter acre in total. This shot shows about only half of the back yard. We definitely need to get some better pictures. The back yard is almost entirely fenced in. Not enough to keep in a dog, but probably enough to deter some children. You can make out part of the fence through the trees...nothing special, a chain link with reddish privacy strips running through it. We think we own this one, since it matches the small portion of fence with a gate that we have at the north side of the house.
Aside from the fence, there will be plenty of room to add a deck off the dining room, and hopefully some day a swimming pool...probably only above ground, but I will take what I can get!
Back to the fences (there are at least three different types, including the plain chain link owned by the neighbors to out north, and the plain chain link that separates our yard from Trapelo Road at the south) there is a small strip of wooden privacy fence that separates this small patio from the front yard. There are bunch of slate paver which could use a little evening out, but it’s a nice secluded corner of the yard, where will plan to set up the grill until we have a deck.
Lastly, this is a view down the front yard, along the other side of that wooden fence. It’s a reasonable bit of yard to have in the front, and has a lovely mature tree, as does most of the street, as you can see in the distance.
