Hi, we live in the Midwest and most people out here tend to use their backyard as recreational areas instead of their front yard. However our house faces northeast so in the evenings, in the backyard, the sun is always in our eyes.
How can we use our front yard instead of our backyard without it looking tacky? We have like a 5x5' patio at our front door and a small sidewalk.
What if we want to use some furniture and/or a fire pit in the front yard, where would we store 'things' when not in use (for easy access and not having to walk around to the back patio to grab stuff.)
Any creative ideas/suggestions?
