Extreme Home Makeover – Episode 7

Extreme Home Makeover – Episode 7

In 2019, Io had the opportunity to donate our design services to two deserving families on HGTV’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” Series. In episode 7, Kelly Mayo’s Washington Terrace home was almost uninhabitable after a tornado caused extensive damage. The community came together to give back to someone who was always giving to others, to re-build Kelly’s house as a beautiful farm-style home. The wrap-around porch is complimented by roses, colorful perennials, and hydrangeas. The backyard is complete with large family dining and a multi-purpose game table.


On every Extreme Makeover: Home Edition project, landscaping is such a huge part of the transformation and the beauty of the final house. It was such a great pleasure working with Shalae and Io LandArch on not only one, but two EM:HE builds! She was able to listen, and hear, our needs as the client, quickly turn around a clear, cohesive plan, and execute that plan and vision during the install of the landscape. The final landscaping product truly complimented the architecture of the house and successfully blended traditional garden motifs with contemporary styling and modern amenities. Thank you Shalae and Io LandArch for not only your guidance and time, but for donating these services to two very deserving families!
