We have got a deck in front of the livingdining room. It is what my wife has wanted for years. The deck is told to be composed of synthetic resin. It contains wood chip components in it. So it is assured to be free from corrosion or ant problems etc. It surely looks good.
My wife may lay planters mainly of roses there. Maybe, we could have tea there as well.
The lawn seems pretty neat. But in a few weeks, without being cared for, it could become messy with weeds. It is the time now when I am supposed to work hard for the garden.
