Show host Matt Blashaw and the Desperate Landscapes crew lent their talents to the front landscape of Blog Cabin 2011, which features a circular drive, paved in eco-friendly and location-appropriate oyster shells. A circular brick staircase ascends to a new fiberglass entry door with beveled-glass sidelights and transom.
