Now that they've seen the inside of the house, the Hale-Jo family heads outside to see what landscape artist Jamie Durie did in just five days.

Using 600 feet of grass, 14 tons of garden rock and more than 200 trees and flowers, Jamie transformed their sparse suburban yard into a lush garden. "I love the stones and the rocks," Kari says. "I love it."

Jamie didn't forget about his smallest clients. A sandbox and plenty of running-around space make this back yard kid-friendly.

In the front yard, a tall hedge creates distinct boundaries. "Everything back from there felt like it was a private part of the family's home," Jamie says.

Jamie's landscaping was a lot more than Kari and Dave ever imagined. When they left their home for two weeks, Kari says she just expected shorter grass when they returned. "Literally, we were like, 'Do you think they'll have to mow?'" she says.
