Backyard Makeover

With a few simple touches and a flash of creativity, star of HGTV's Surprise Gardener, Susie Coelho, turns this boring backyard into a haven in just one day.


This backyard had a lovely lawn, but the homeowners (my friends) felt that overall it lacked charm and character. "It's just boring," said my friends. "The kids play out there, but we never invite guests. The garage wall is chipped, the plants are struggling, and we have no place to entertain." With the challenge on the table I sat down to design the yard. I wanted to add color, create a fun atmosphere and define spaces for parties, play and hanging out every day. Coming up: a yard they would be proud of!
