Cindi Martin knows how to repurpose and throw a great party!

"This is our backyard in Pennsylvania.  Every year we add more and more. Last year we did three really big projects which included running electric throughout yard, taking down four 60 ft+ pine trees, and installing windbreaker fence (which I designed to the front and back corners of our property. We are big into reusing items also. As you can see, we have a corncrib gazebo, hanging flower planters made from conveyor belting at a feed mill, tire rim fire ring and refurbished furniture. Of course the center piece of the yard is the Mount Fuji weeping cherry. It is beautiful in the Spring. The fountain area has weeping butterfly bushes (that as you can see are a challenge to keep under control) as well as several varieties of hydrangeas. There is also a custom tree house complex built around (not attached to) a perfect Norway maple for all to enjoy. Yes, my husband even put in horseshoe pits along hedge with night lighting. We love to entertain on weekends. We even did our first garden tour 2 years ago and welcomed over 200 people into our yard. Looking forward to doing another one sometime."
