With a shared driveway behind her home, Anne had no private outdoor space to relax and entertain. This overgrown side yard might not scream outdoor oasis, but that's what Anne created:

From Anne:

Our home sits on a corner and we have a shared driveway with a neighbor directly behind it - meaning we have no back yard! Although we have a large front yard, there was no private space for spending time outside. However, there was a small overgrown patch of yard between the side of our house and our other neighbor's driveway. By adding a privacy fence, some landscaping, a cement paver patio and some sod we were able to create a modern, urban outdoor space from a completely wasted area. It is amazing how private it feels - we love spending evenings on the patio now, listening to music and enjoying drinks with friends.

Thank you Anne!
