The dilapidated deck was one of two remaining dilapidated structures in the yard that we needed to demo. The most flimsy pieces of it were throw away over the past year(s) but the majority of the structure remained. A rat / black widow / rusty nail haven. With an exploring gsd, it had to go.
The apricot tree is happy to be freed. A front section of fence is the remaining dilapidated thing to demo, and it is also the last remaining maroon-painted thing I have to look at daily.
