I have wanted to create an outdoor sitting area for about two years now.
Not a second deck or a fancy patio, just a little sitting area IN the garden.
A place where I can appreciate how beautiful my plants are growing and my flowers are blooming.
I already had the perfect little table and two chairs for such an area. Let me show you what I did.
Removing grass to create an outdoor sitting area
The first thing I did was remove more grass. Now, you might think that soon there won’t be any grass left in our yard, but honestly, I would prefer it that way!
I removed the grass by cutting it, with a spade, into strips of about 1 x 6 feet and then rolling it up to be hauled away. This is the same method I used making all the flowerbeds when I started the garden from scratch (read it here).
I said it before and I will say it again: this might be the worst job ever!
