Karen Bertelsen’s Backyard Makeover


I love my backyard. It is not in the state of Karen Bertelsen's but each year we transform a section and each year it becomes more and more of an oasis. We bought a house that required quite a bit of attention so the backyard was not the first priority. However, given how short our summers are and how much I love sitting outside, creating a little piece of heaven was definitely a requirement. This year we enlarged our gallery and moved the stairs to in front of the kitchen door. This not only visually enhanced the backyard but created a better flow of energy. Now I am in the process of painting the gallery black and turning it into a little bistro area complete with outdoor carpet and lanterns. I will post the before and afters as soon as it is complete.
