Anne Barone has successfully transformed her yard and gardens in Baltimore, winning her local garden contest.
"I have lived in my house in Baltimore, Maryland, for a total of 17 years now. At that time, both the front and back gardens were in a state of disarray. The grass was removed from the front yard, ground cover was planted on the slope, and Knockout roses were planted along the steps. For spring color, I planted daffodils among the ground cover. In the back, everything was ripped out. I had a pond placed in the existing deck, a patio was built and slowly I worked on the beds and pathways. Our newspaper, The Sun, has a garden contest every year and my garden won The Best Garden in 2012."
