They feel that their backyard looks like a park, but the front yard looks more like a parking lot. Guest designer Renee Kenney comes to the rescue by adding a fun copper fountain and new landscaping that will give the front area year-round color.
Here's how they accomplish it:
- Remove vertical beams and replace with a single horizontal beam to open up entryway
- Take out the old concrete path, porch and driveway and pour red-toned concrete to give the yard color
- Build a retaining wall made from interlocking blocks and install outdoor lighting to give the walkway better visibility
