We looked at the back corner of our backyard for months, trying to come up with ideas to fill the space where the cubby house had been. I’m glad we waited and really thought it through. I’m someone who needs to visualise so it was tricky to me. In the end, we concreted a square area, put up a shade sail (too windy for any other structures I was considering), painted the back fence a slate blue, bamboo screening on the cream colour bond fence, a few pots with colours, and a tranquil buddha-type plaque (large), and Kmart Moroccan-style furniture. We love it. It’s my happy place on a nice day.
