Ready for a weekend porch makeover.
Landscape architect Joann Schwarberg leads us through a weekend action plan for transforming our dead-leaf-riddled outdoor spaces into true retreats. She recently tackled her neighbors' porch and patio so the couple will be set to host a class reunion.
"Like many of our homes, these areas needed to be ready for adult entertaining and relaxing," Schwarberg says. "They needed cleaning from the crud of winter. Furniture had to be upgraded, pots needed to be bigger and color needed to be added through cushions and plants."
