Safe Backyard for Kids: After

Who: Jennifer C.
Where: Baltimore, MD

When I was 8 months pregnant with my second child, I suddenly lost our baby girl. My stepsister, as a bereavement gift, designed a beautiful deck and landscaping for our back yard that also included a remembrance garden for our daughter. My husband built the deck and pergola, and I planted all the plants and shrubs. We now have a new baby girl and both children now have a beautiful back yard to run and play and we have a deck to relax and entertain.

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