BBQ deck , a what ?

After re-building our little bbq deck I had to deal with a mess of mud, a patch that left a huge gap under the neighbours fence , they have the cutest puppy , which one of my dogs is obsessed and so curious of , so curious he scraped the skin next to his eye to raw , so I knew I had to deal with the gap , I edged the area with cement edgers and filled the space up with nutrient rich soil and a few easy growing perennials, grasses and a hosta's and clematis.
At the end of the day I took the old boards of the bbq deck and used them to create shutters.
*what the heck is a bbq deck , well it is a small left over bit of deck left over from our back door , from when we built our proper deck , it is off to the side of the yard , after building our deck we didn't feel there was room for a bbq on it , and it keeps the grease and mess and smoke well away from the house, it has turned out to be a great mistake. Would you think these are New or old shutters...
I love it Just before the sun goes down...


I enjoyed my Pretty green lanterns...
I treated myself to a Pina colada...after all my hard work. BBQ deck can be seen over there to the right with our hand me down Weber BBQ from my dad , it must be 11 years old and it is still rockin the bbq food .

So here's the new patch of garden ...I look forward to how nice and full it will hopefully soon look because right now it looks sad , but it is better than a mud pit for sure.

Your new landscaping looks great and I like the idea of having the BBQ in a separate area like that.

Oh now you certainly deserve to relax. Can I ask what was a great mistake? Where you put it? Just curious. I think your new little garden will look great. Shutters are totally awesome!
