Ok, this is the side of my house. (We just had a sidewalk poured. That's why the yard is mud.) The area jutting out where you can see the down spout going is a back porch. I'm going to add some window boxes under those windows, but I'm really trying to figure out what to do with the gaping hole under that area (it's open toward the front of the house, too.) I considered filling it in with cement blocks and then painting it and the rest of the stne foundation the same color. I have also considered putting lattice up like you see on the front porch. What do you think? I'm open to ALL ideas!
