For Alexis Motuz, what began with a knock on the door on a sweltering summer afternoon, became a project to better her home, her neighbourhood, and the environment.

Alexis entered a contest to win a front yard makeover and she won! Here’s a series of blog posts that looks at her journey transforming her yard. The end result is that she now has a RAIN Smart Home. The video above looks at the features of the completed makeover.
