Season 5, Episode 13

Green Backyard

John & Jessica were looking for a starter house where they could get in at a low price and hopefully add some sweat to boost their equity. They found a small house that needed the works and for the past six months have been working hard on the floors, walls and even the kitchen. The backyard is next on the list. The steps aren't to code and the raised paver patio was built incorrectly and slopes into the house carrying water right into the lower level windows. They plan to stretch their $12,000 budget by reusing the pavers for a new separate patio, building a wraparound composite deck, painting the house, and adding a screen of arborvitaes and other landscaping elements to bring their home up to code and up to par.
