When Christine Matthews bought her first house, she knew she'd be relying on her family for help. Since big sister Amy is a licensed contractor, dad is Mr. Home Improvement and mom is a master gardener, they can handle it all. Christine will need the help because the 1920s bungalow needs a new bathroom, a finished basement and a landscape makeover. Christine wants to start in the backyard that currently is nothing but overgrown grass and weeds. The yard slopes toward the garage and that needs addressing. Dozing and leveling the yard and adding drainage are essential. The key is keep the yard low maintenance because Christine is young, single and doesn't want to be tied to yard work, but still wants it to look great.
