Grounds for Improvement helps homeowners solve those landscaping problems and make over their outdoor space in style. Jackie Taylor and Dean Hill, hosts of DIY Network’s Grounds for Improvement, teach techniques ranging from basic landscaping to intricate hardscaping. They demonstrate how to lay sod, plant shrubs, trim trees, install water features, construct arbors, erect fences, create pathways, and much more. All this knowledge is put to use on some of the most practical, beautiful, and luxurious projects ever—all presented with vivid illustrations and detailed instructions. Any home can get an uplift from the tiled patio and retaining wall, pergola, courtyard with stone planters, waterfall, or outdoor kitchen. And who wouldn’t love having their own putting green and hot tub right in their own backyard? Throughout the book, dozens of photos capture the amazing difference between “before” and “after”—a difference that anyone can make when they do it themselves.
