We didn't do a whole lot to the front. We added lighting, a boulder and a few plants near the street. The main part of the project is in the back. We removed all of the gravel and made a whimsical design. They had the door/gate and the brick patio. The rest of the yard was gravel. We scooped all the gravel out and tilled compost. Then we planted shade friendly plants and made it fun. In the nook by the back door we altered their planter into a little rain garden with mixed tumbled glass.
