Jeannette and Joe Malatesta live in a Colonial-style home with their two daughters, a chocolate lab, one corn snake and a crested gecko. While they've done several home improvements to the inside of their home, the front yard has been neglected and needs some sprucing up. Designer Mark Pellegrino has a design in mind that includes some bold decorative touches to the house that also reflect the colonial look, along with a clean, low-maintenance yard.
