Lori's steel front door is very desperate. It's rusty and needs a new coat of paint. We opted not to replace it because of how long it would take to order a door with the same custom window as Lori's original door. Then we built a three-sided fence to conceal a transformer in the front yard. And when we removed some plants, we uncovered mildew on Lori's siding, which we removed with proper cleaner — and plenty of elbow grease. Before planting, the 150-foot-square bed is outlined and cleared of sod.
