Banishing Desperation With Fire, Water and a Bit of New Mexican Sun

Jason Cameron heads to Albuquerque to help Wendy and Adam Livermore. The homeowners are renovating a foreclosure, and these Wisconsin transplants know nothing about landscaping in New Mexico. Jason's plan to help banish their desperation includes building a new deck featuring the Zia sun, an important part of the culture in New Mexico. A beautiful wooden loggia with a sailcloth cover will add shade to the yard. A fire feature will keep the homeowners warm at night and a water feature will add a relaxing touch. The front yard will also include a living wall and plenty of plants that thrive in the Albuquerque sun. Is all this enough to stop the neighbors' complaints? Jason thinks the answer will be a resounding yes.
