Who: Brian B.
Where: Thurmont, Maryland
My dad dug the hole and helped lay the stone but I created the fence, arbor, gates, and waterfall. I planted a wide variety of plants. A section is a butterfly garden and an herb garden, the other is a relaxing area with the hammock. Most of what you see is not mature, but in a few years it will certainly be heaven after work. The yard went from a plain drab side yard to a wonderful oasis to relax and spend my evenings with my wife watching the sun set over the mountains.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
