Help! I Need a Summer Backyard Makeover

Sponsored by Lowe's

So it's time to share my new assignment as a Lowe's Creative Ideas Network Member.  Have you seen my kids' room makeover? How about my curb appeal makeover

Well, now it's time to tackle the backyard and get it summer ready, wooo hoooo, I have two months to complete the project, June and July, so far my husband has been working very hard on the sprinklers, some of them are not showing up when we turn the water on! 

So basically my backyard still looks the same.  Let me show you how it looks right now.

Lots of cables from lights that used to work 10 years ago.

Backyard with a dirt area and two bunches of electric wires from lights.

As you can see little grass (what there is is new!) and few plants.

A backyard with no grass, there is a kid's basketball hoop on the right side and a small palm on the left side.

Lots of pots, chairs covered in spider webs and rocks without a home.

A plastic table and plastic chairs on the flor in a back yard. There are a couple of columns with clay pots and some greenery in the background.

This is my covered patio and my very neglected grass (the green parts are recently arrived).

Palms and greenery next to the fence in the backyard.

As you can see it needs a lot of work, I'm lost! I need to choose an area and make it pretty, don't you think? Do you have any ideas or tips? What do you think I should do?

Of course I have a giveaway today! The giveaway has ended.
