    Josh Hucklenbrick loves to spend time in his backyard -- especially now that he and his wife, Danielle, made some major enhancements. When Hucklenbrick first moved into his grandfather's former home four years ago, the yard was mainly a sea of grass. But now the yard features a new deck made from recycled wood, an attractive privacy fence, a meandering brick walkway, a new patio fashioned out of brick pavers and a brick fire pit.

    Sue Flachs pulls no punches when it comes to her family's lifestyle. "We're not TV people," she said. "We're outdoors every night that we can be. We live more outside than inside from April through November." That mindset is what made Sue so appreciative of the work her husband, Jack, 60, and their son, Jack Jr., 37, did to rebuild their sizable deck as part of an overall backyard project.
