Dirt to Turf!

So when we rented this Townhouse online sight unseen we never saw a picture of the "baby backyard" and much to our surprise is was a dirt pile. It sucked and for the last year we dealt with it but since we are staying in our rental longer than originally planned I just couldn't go another Summer with the gross dirt pile. 
 But since we will be hopefully moving out at the end of the year we don't want to put much money into this, such a conundrum. Most of our neighbors have turf since the yard really isn't a yard at all. So for my early Birthday present Matt and I watched a tutorial online and set out to DIY our own turf yard!
 This took Matt about 6+ hours and we got everything from Home Depot and since we already just started out with a dirt patch Step 1 was already done for us!
 The yard isn't perfectly level or professionally installed but the end result is still like night and day from what we had before! And it is so easy to clean up after the dogs!

 I also wanted to freshen up the patio so thanks to Target and Home Goods I created a Shabby chic patio for us to enjoy all the beautiful Denver days ahead!
 Now, keeping the boys from peeing on the new rug is quite a challenge for my rowdy boys so so far so good! In about a month I will plant some flowers and herbs which will be nice!

 So it's amazing what a great job Matt did and how I was able to pull together a cute patio on a nonexistent budget..... this way all our coming up house guests can have a nice place to eat dinner or enjoy a cup of coffee!!!
