Lakeside Retreat

An overgrown yard is updated with a sleek pool and lots of stonework.

Before: Crumbling Backyard

Six years ago, Chuck and Angela Nacos found their dream home in Fort Collins, Colo., while shopping at a garage sale. Not only did they walk away with two chairs, but also with a beautiful lakeside home. Their new home suits their style and their love for water, but the yard itself hasn't been touched since the house was originally built. The pair is ready to see how the Landscapers' Challenge designers can transform the lifeless backyard into a lakeside retreat.

Chuck and Angela Nacos fell in love with their lakeside home the minute they spotted it during a garage sale. Unfortunately, the backyard looks like it has suffered from years of neglect. Overgrown plantings and crumbling stone pathways have seen better days.
