Hide CaptionShow CaptionNow the backyard is a functional space for any potential home buyer.
This backyard used to be overgrown with a path that was too narrow, lacked a place to sit and had a broken, faded fence. Now, a manicured oasis awaits a potential buyer. Green grass, bright flowers, custom-built benches and a freshly-painted fence have transformed this space into a highly desirable selling feature.

Cost breakdown:

sod, plants and flowers $880
bench materials $173
brick restoration $24
bedroom furnishing and accessories $572
bathroom fixtures $160
paint and accessories $186
