Susie Coelho, host of HGTV's Surprise Gardner, shows how you can spruce up a dull backyard in just one day!
Makeover Your Bare Backyard
Create an outdoor room with wooden stakes and a large canvas; lace Jasmine through fence lattice.
Mossy green paint camouflages moss growing on walls.
Use a trellis that holds potted plants and climbs up the wall or other cute, inexpensive accessories to add style and beauty to your garden.
Expand the backyard by borrowing from neighbors—incorporate colors from neighbors' exposed walls into planted pots.
Create a focal point—a water feature brings a tranquil feeling and buffers neighborhood sounds
A tetherball and a bench will add areas for playing and sitting.
