Scott’s House Call: Small Backyard Makeover


The Mewa Family just moved into a great new house in the suburbs with plenty of room for their young family to grow into. With 3 active kids, a big backyard was a must. The problem?

Between the crumbling patio stones, dead grass and dingy fence, it’s not exactly summer ready – and with the school year about to end that’s less than ideal!

They need Scott’s help to transform their backyard into a family friendly space that is one part soccer field for the kids, one part relaxation area for mom and dad.
