After: Pleasing Balance(20 of 26)

The rather bare-looking windows on the front of the house are not all the same size, which gave the house an unbalanced look. Using awnings hung at the same height gives the house a more uniform and eye-pleasing look. In addition on the house sticks out like a sore thumb and needed a good cleaning. We washed the exterior of that portion of the house with soapy water and soft cloth rags and sponges. Before planting, the bed is outlined and cleared of sod. Jason created a planting bed 24 feet deep running across the front of the house.
