A Gardener's Yard: After

Who: Susan S.
Where: Thornwood, NY

I get such enjoyment and pleasure sitting outside in what has become my sanctuary. My husband built an arbor across the property, giving the house a front yard and backyard; we removed the old driveway; we did all the landscaping ourselves; and finally, last year we were able to have a new patio installed. Though we moved into the worst house in the neighborhood, thanks to my husband, it's now my dream home.

Who did the work: We did most of the work ourselves.
Cost:$25,000-$50,000
