Family-centered BackyardWhen Jeanette Cantrell's parents moved, they wanted their home to stay within the family so they sold the home to Jeanette and her husband, Jason.
With the help of host Susie Coelho, the Outer Spaces team and designer Cheryl Campbell, the backyard is transformed into a space that's centered on the "family" tree. This avocado tree is very important to the homeowners, so it's the centerpiece of the makeover design.
Seating for the FamilyA bench surrounds the tree and provides lots of seating for family gatherings.

Uninviting YardPlants have overtaken this neglected backyard and there is so much concrete that it isn't very inviting.
New Plants add StyleDrought-resistant plants in huge pots add color, height and interest to the open areas of the concrete while also framing the entire space.
