After: Hiding the Air Conditioning(18 of 26)

The air conditioning unit sits right in front of the house. Shrubs helped soften it, but Jason's plan also used a two-sided screen to help hide it even more. The benefit of a two-sided screen: It won't trap heat.The slate walkway and patio are great features on the house, but they’re both needed serious repair. The homeowners will eventually need to take up all the stones and re-lay them which would take a couple of days. Jason's plan doesn’t allow for that much time, but he fixed the worst stones that posed a tripping hazard.
