Fixing an Artist's Ugly Landscape With Stainless Steel, Paint and Plants

Jason Cameron brings his Desperate Landscapes crew to an artist's ugly front yard. The artist's home features funky and fun artwork inside, but the front of the house is hidden by a huge six-foot wall and overgrown trees. Jason uses a concrete saw to cut the wall in half and a chainsaw to take down a tree. Once the landscape is opened up, Jason adds stainless steel planters to some unused arches. He adds a Pennsylvania Quartzite cap to the smaller wall and adds a custom-built stainless steel awning over the front door. If that weren't enough, there are custom-built stainless steel planters that fit over the front stoop, and homeowner Jason Hargis's artistic skills are put to the test by painting some funky planters for the entry way. The look is completed with a fresh coat of paint for the house and front door and some new furniture for the patio.
