Our yard is a mess right now. The fencing company we hired to do the fence as well as putting a concrete in the backyard is putting off their job until after New Year. The reason why it's because the building permit that my husband applied was denied by the city. For some reason, in order to replace your old fence you got to apply for a permit for that. Much worse, there is a building restriction in this area so residents are not allowed to put up a car port visible to the street. But my husband isn't just wanting a cheap car port, he wants a workshop, a better building an owner can be proud to have in the backyard yet he is still denied with that.
It would be a dream come true for him if one day he will be able to have a place to park his cars under the roof and be able to work on stuff comfortably. And for me, it would be a dream come true if I can do something so beautiful with our backyard garden. Put an arbor maybe? These things are commonly seen at the park, public garden etc where people can take photographs in garden arbors or wooden arbors.
I know it may look ridiculous having an arbor in the backyard but aren't arbors look great wherever they are placed? We shall see if the husband would approve of my idea having an arbor in the backyard and make it a mini flower garden out there.
