Weed-Filled Yard Becomes Setting for Teahouse and Garden: After

Who: Stephanie D.
Where: Portland, OR

Building an oversize playhouse ended up being a fantastic idea. The kids enjoy it all day, and in the evening after they go to bed, it's the perfect place for my husband and I to relax with a glass of wine. I made a point of planting lots of evergreens and winter-blooming plants to ensure year-round pretty views. And because my husband and I hate mowing the lawn, we decided to get rid of ALL of the grass.

Who did the work: We did most of the work ourselves.
Cost: $5,000-$10,000
