After: Playing Seriously(22 of 26)

With paint, containers, shrubs and a little inspiration, Jason has everyone singing the praises of the Risners' home on Scott Boulevard. Jason's team did some patchwork on the masonry walls beforehand so the patches would have time to dry before painting. Jason's plan calls for a simple square planter for Jane and Lee's patio. He built a 27" x 27" planter frame to accommodate a 26"-diameter plastic pot, using marine-grade plywood for the planter. Replacing Jane and Lee's old screen door is a relatively simple project. One of the problems with this yard was that the garage is such a focal point. Jason softened the look by hanging a planter above the garage.
