This is the story of a renter in Chicago who turned an old lot into something special…
Most of us who live in urban areas, do not have a yard. This is often a hindrance if you like to experience outdoor activities such as barbecues.
As always. there is a solution to every problem. The one thing we do have in urban areas is a lot of neglected lots.
Why not turn one of them in to your own personal oasis, as one Reddit user Genkenx did.
This photo shows the backyard after it was raked and the years of leaves, rocks, gravel and debris removed.
Here’s another view. The long and narrow yard enclosed by a chain link fence and serves little value.
Fence removed on the left side and time to start getting some grass growing.
Added a BBQ, some string lights and Tiki torches… Looks like someone is about ready to celebrate!
By the way, the project would not be complete without a hot tub, even though it took up a lot of space.
A fire pit, hot tub, hammock and friends makes for an enjoyable evening at the makeover backyard!
A view when the sun goes down!
