Our New Urban Yard: After

Who: Sophia M.
Where: Somerville, MA

We removed the trees, dug out the root systems and tar, removed the pink tile and the overgrown bushes, installed a new fence and added a storage shed. I hired a hardscape company to install stone and build raised beds along with a built-in fire pit and grilling area. After that, we put down sod, planted a dogwood, hydrangea, espalier apples along with perennial beds and a vegetable and herb potted garden. Solar sconces keep the yard lit at night.

Who did the work: I did some of the work myself
Cost: $10,000 to $25,000
