The HOMEmade crew created a fancy new face for Kathryn's 1970's flat. They transformed an overgrown, tired looking front yard into a realxing cottage garden which is clear, clean and functional. The project included ripping up the existing lawn and filling it with pebbles to create an extra parking space, building a pergola with hanging plants and giving the front of the house a paint. Dan brought in an industrial pipe which he turned into a planter filled with cottage garden varieties.
