Melissa Lallo Johnson and her husband have combined efforts to create a special woodland oasis in Missouri.
"When we purchased the home 5.5 years ago, there was almost no grass and no landscaping on the distressed property. The property located in Kansas City, MO and is 8.4 acres and backs up to a large, gorgeous creek. I have done all of the landscaping myself and my husband has been in charge of the lawn renovation."
