And the last piece of the puzzle clanks into place...
Last year, we embarked on a Yard Makeover, which you can read all about here. There was one final bit of the project though, that we were having a devil of a time completing: finding someone to design and build a custom wrought iron gate to replace the battered wooden one between the driveway and backyard. We wanted something open that would allow the breezes through to help cool the backyard on warm summer days. I was adamant that I didn't want something that looked institutional, though.
It's taken eight months, but as of Sunday we finally have our new gate, and we're thrilled with the results!
The designer copied a scroll motif from the metal work in our baker's table in the grill area to add some interest. A definite improvement, n'est-ce pas? ~
