RE: Figuring Out What to Do with My Backyard ??
Do they still do that show "Yard Crashers"? That is what you need. Just go to one of the home imporovement stores and wander around hoping someone comes up to you and asks if you have a project going on. They make some really sturdy pergola type things for a good price. Sam's Club has a cedar one that looks pretty cool. It is pricey though.
