I am 43 i am a cancer survival twice god has really been good to me i am truly greatful i have been working hard little by little to fix my house. i had colon cancer and cancer which my mom and aunt died of colon cancer and my mom died of cancer. when all that happen my husband couldn't handle the pressure we got a divorce. I have so many dreams about decorating my house. When I was sick with cancer I lost my house but god provided me with a new one . I would be happy if i could get a layout plan for my backyard.

I LOVE your Yard Crasher show!!!
When are you coming to Houston, Texas??
We have had two different companies sod the small portion of my backyard. Each company put down sod TWICE; that makes four times we've had new sod and still we have NO grass!! We even bought shade tollerant sod and that didn't grow. All the sod companies tell us is to cut the trees down. We certainly won't do that!! We've had the trees trimmed twice and still have no grass. The company won't work with us on what we paid them, either. They said the first sod was moldy and had fungus. Now the half of our yard that had our original grass has fungus and it is in trouble. I will send pictures of the mud in the center of our yard where they sod won't grow, if you would like to see how awful it looks. We don't want a swimming pool put in because of our little dog and grandchildren coming over and it would probably kill our three trees, anyway. Please help us with your FABULOUS ideas!!!

When will Yard Crashers be coming to South Georgia? My husband works almost 7 days a week at two full time jobs, and I work full time and we raise three girls (16, 11, and 8)...with school and dance classes, there's really not a whole lot of time to take care of the things we'd like to do in the backyard so that we can enjoy it more.

Thanks!

Do you do crashes in smaller cities? We're on the Washington/Idaho border and there are TONS of yards you could crash in this area!
