A small brownstone backyard gets a makeover that looks good from all directions.
Hide CaptionShow CaptionA new deck installation has forced this couple to view their neglected yard from a whole new perspective.
Allan Suarez and fiance Evelyn Gonzales have a history with their house, since Allan has lived there since he was a small child. However, the garden hasn't been touched since then. Added to that, they have recently installed a large deck, meaning the view from above has become just as important as the way it looks from the ground. Using flagstones and traditional plantings, host Matt James brings structure to the yard, making it a formal yet relaxed space that looks great from any direction.
