Jason Cameron: Okay, here’s the deal our game plan is simple, 8 am we got started, 5 pm we’ve finished in 1763 goes from worst to first. Trust me.
Male: That sounds like a mission impossible.
Female: If he can change that in eight hours I’ll be amazed.
Female: Miracles do happen so one day, good luck!
Jason Cameron: Hold that.
Female: I am.
Jason Cameron: I’m not giving this stuff for free we got to do some work.
Female: Goodbye bad yard.
Jason Cameron: This stucco insert between the bricks really daze the house so I picked the color I thought would blend in. I liked it. Molly?
Molly: Say more—with a little touch of brown mix in it. Not pretty.
I think it looks better I like the color better and it blends in well with the house
Jason Cameron: We get a lot of big holes to dig today and to make that job a lot easier we’re using the Dingo with this auger attachment. Now this is a 30-inch auger and you can rent this attachment for about $125.00 a day, just make sure that when you decide to rent one check with your local nursery and find out the biggest hole that you're going to dig so you can get the right auger for the job. Trust me its more worth the money, it’s going to save us a heck of a lot of time and its going to save our backs.
Molly: Looking good, a lot that needs to be done but a little like in the bushes and all the paints, they’re putting it right now, very exciting.
Jason Cameron: We’re going to start working on the patio area saving the concrete standing for last. I want to get the projects done so we don’t have to walk as much in that area. The dated old looking light fixtures are gone and in their place, this limestone caps, they’re not cheap, about $500.00. But this is a very prominent spot that anyone walking in around the house will see.
At 8 AM this morning, this is what Joe and Molly’s landscape looked liked. Eight hours later, the desperation is long gone. Here’s how we did it, we brought in a 160 new plants and focused on three main areas. On the left the garage wall is no longer a big mass of bricks that dominates the landscape. In the center, we ditched the dated features like the multiple light fixtures and dressed up the area with shrubs and new limestone caps. The mismatch concrete porch is transformed thanks to Eco-Friendly Stain. On the right, we soften the corner of the house by bringing in tall full shrubs and of course, we took the turf from straw field to top notch.
Molly: I could see us ladies sitting up here. Here Ali take a seat.
Jason Cameron: Go a head and take a load off ladies
Molly: Finally, I can share my yard and not be embarrassed.
Jason Cameron: Hey Joe, you're doing a good job buddy. I appreciate it. Nice job. You need anything?
Joe: They go it, they got it.
Jason Cameron: You guys did a great job, but Molly what is your favorite part?
Molly: I think my favorite part, I love the shutters and I love the sitting area over here and all the plants look amazing
Jason Cameron: I couldn’t agree more. What about you Joe?
Joe: I like the area over here where it’s just a muddled mess of weeds now we got the beautiful arborvitae and the hydrangea and the sauco plants it just looks great, everything looks great.
Jason Cameron: You pretty much sound to that muddled mess of weeds because that’s what you had. But no longer do you have that.
