Eric and Danielle Wotzak have been renovating this fantastic house in Northport, New York, for the past year, and now they're starting to think about what to do in the front yard. One thing Eric is sure of is that he wants to rip out this hydrangea, because he thinks it crowds the porch steps. Dani, on the other hand, is equally determined to keep it. Whose side are you on?
