Who: Beverly T.
Where: Memphis, TN
We have added window boxes and an arbor to the west side of our house, which was plain and severe as the driveway abuts to the house as well as a swing in the front yard—a must in our neighborhood. At 65, I painted the pergola and railings and we bought all of the plants ourselves, planted them, and mulched. I love the wall with stone columns around the AC units and having an attractive deck to enjoy the outdoors.
Who did the work: I did some of the work myself, but a contractor did most of it
Cost: $10,000 to $25,000
