After: Plant Bed Balance(8 of 26)

The garage was sealed off by a previous owner in 1967. It's now considered the eyesore of the neighborhood. Jeff and Jason tear down the wall using sledge hammers. Important: Always check the framing before starting demolition. When you knock out wall sections, you want to hit out, not in. Before planting, the bed is outlined and cleared of all existing shrubs and sod. We're creating a huge bed of 30 feet long by 15 feet wide. We also created a smaller bed on the left side of the garage to give the yard some balance.
