Season 2, Episode 3

The Root of the Problem

Alex & Ruth's backyard is overrun with roots, and the only place they have to hang out is on a tiny, oddly-shaped concrete pad. After bringing in heavy machinery to tackle the root problem, Landscape Designer Sara Bendrick creates an elegant space that features a sunken seating area & a dining area with retractable shades. A simple, inexpensive A-frame garden dresses up a concrete block wall, and a personalized fire pit area gives them plenty of space to entertain.
