Greta and her family just put the finishing touches on a magnificent backyard hideaway to play giant chess. Her son, daughter, and husband are looking forward to BBQ’s and sharing the chess set with everyone they now.
I asked Greta how she created it.
“The 12×12 concrete pavers were picked up at the local Home Depot for quite cheap, and only took a few hours to lay and level. We actually have a lot of concrete work around our property so it seemed only appropriate to add something else creative and concrete. We surround it with a planting bed (I LOVE to garden) to sort of enclose it. It will take a year or two for the plants to fully mature and create the little hideaway we’re looking for. A special pathway we cut through the yard leads up to a small bridge that you cross to enter the chess area. It’s so much fun!”
