Empty house tour - outdoor areas

I want to share with you our house before we moved in! I'm going to do a few posts showing "before" photos. First, here's our street:



That pile of brush on the right was made by James the first day we got our keys. The vegetation was a bit wild!



There's a courtyard area outside the front door. I like it because it feels very protected/secluded.


This is the view from the front door, looking out.


On to the back yard
  

We have a covered patio outside the back door.



Our back yard has a lemon tree, blackberry bush (which I know I'll be constantly trimming so that it doesn't take over) and the neighbor has a cherry tree that hangs over the fence too. 




This photo is the only record I have of the crazy bushes and trees that had overtaken the whole east side of the house. Hubby cleared it all out.


Can't wait to show you the rest of our home sweet home!
