Before: The Worst Yard in America

The winning yard was found in Roswell, Ga, a community about one hour north of Atlanta. Homeowners, Randi and Tim Riefenberg, had a total eye sore with a barren yard, battleship gray house, overgrown plants and a rotting roof with multiple satellites.

After: Major Curb Appeal

Randi and Tim's new front yard features a patio hardscape with attractive pavers, lush, flowering plants and the bright white home with a blue door seems cheery from the curb.

Before: Driveway or Creek?

The old driveway pooled water which, for central Georgia, could mean a mosquito breeding ground in the summer.

After: Gorgeous Slate Gravel

The new, level driveway features beautiful pieces of dark slate that contrasts with the bright, white home.

Before: Rotting Retaining Wall

The old retaining wall was so far gone that two trees were growing through the beams plus roots punching through. 

After: This Wall's Not Moving

There's no risk of the neighbor's yard falling into the driveway now.

Before: Dust Bowl

The Riefenberg's yard is missing one typical feature: grass.

After: Pin-Worthy Patio

DIY Network’s Jason Cameron reveals the new frontyard to homeowners Randi and Tim Riefenberg, winners of America’s Most Desperate Landscape 2016.

Before: Rock City

In addition to other eye sores, huge rock boulders created an awkward mound in the front yard.

After: Natural Privacy

The boulders couldn't be moved as the necessary equipment would have damaged the trees in the yard. But host Jason Cameron worked around the boulders, adding new plants and landscaping, and created a beautiful, serene wall that hides the outdoor kitchen from view from the road.

Before: Looking Rough

The walkway was in desperate need of an upgrade, with an empty dirt pit and overgrown plants.

After: Welcoming Walkway

The new front landscaping features gorgeous flowering plants like red azaleas, deep pink peonies and white hydrangeas.
