America’s Most Desperate Landscape 2009

Who Needs a Sidewalk?

After: The driveway has been moved 15 feet to the left of the old driveway, opening up the front of the house for lawn. The roof color dictated the color of the house and the pavers. The ugly addition is a thing of the past.

Driveway Moved

After: The new driveway is composed of Belgrade pavers, in a color that complements the house’s new paint job.

After: The walkway, wide enough for two people to walk side by side, curves by beautiful landscaping. One of the first things that visitors see is the fountain in a blue urn.
