Blast from the past, for sure. I'll update mine, too.

I admit that I've kind of let the outside of my house go - the back yard especially. I need to trim some landscaping, stain our deck and spread some grass seed for it to be presentable.

My deck is a wreck. The people who built it did less than a stellar job (when we had the siding on the house replaced we earned they "attached" the deck to the house with two wood screws). A few years ago we tried out this paint product that gives your deck the look and feel of those composite decks. The stuff started bubbling and peeling after a few months and now our deck is a mix of peeling paint and wood in desperate need of cleaning and staining or painting. I had thought about scrapping off the peeling paint over the summer, but never actually got around to it. The kids are doing it bit by bit though.

As for the yard itself... yeah... maybe I'll get lucky and win one of those backyard makeovers....

Well, that depends why do you need a big yard. Sometimes a small backyard looks even cozier as mine.

Though it looks a bit unkempt now (because of winter) but I like it. What's more surprising is that you still need a lawnmower. Sometimes I envy one of my neighbours, who has a tractor like one of these. That's definitely an overkill for my yard, but maybe I'll get a bigger one after retirement. I'll be driving it all day and drink beer.
