The Marilyn Team Just Pulled Off The Biggest Surprise EVER!

Owen Reeves and Andrew Pike were given a truly incredible backyard blank canvas to work their magic on, and let's just say they didn't dissapoint. From the incredible transformation of the yard, thanks to Owen's stunning landscaping plan, to Andrew's perfectly pretty patio, homeowners Robb and Emily got the surprise of a lifetime. Especially Emily, but you'll have to watch to find out why!

If you have your own bakyard overhaul in the works, Gardening expert Owen Reeves has shared his fool-proof plan for space planning the perfect backyard space:
 
STEP 1: Hardscape elements always go in first. Anchor your yard with the biggest elements first: a deck, patio, and any other hardscaped elements such a pavers.
 
STEP 2: Consider colours. Wood and pavers both come in MANY different colours, and materials, these days. When installing your deck or pavers, make sure to consider the colour of your home, and what colour(s) you’ll choose for these hardscaped elements.
 
STEP 3: After your hardscaped elements are good to go, choose where you will plant trees. ALSO, take not of where existing trees are already living. Typically, many people put tall, leafy trees along their fence line, for added privacy. Also, consider adding a she at the back of your yard at this point.
 
STEP 4: Add in your softscape elements. Softscape elements are garden beds. Plan where they will go – around trees, around your shed, and patio. Consider the shape and size of your garden beds, as well as what types of plants will go in each bed – depending on sunlight, each gardenbed will cater to different plant types.
