Who: Pat C
Where: Groton Long Point, Conn.
We ripped out the overgrown sixty-year-old azalea hedges and replaced it with new evergreen shrubs and a simple weeping cherry tree. We built classic, white window boxes to frame the six windows in the front of the house. We had new royal blue, canvas awnings installed to complement our old and rustic nautical blue Adirondack chairs. Now, we enjoy our summer cottage and when we drive by, we see how much cuter our house looks.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
