Sara Bendrick is a licensed landscape contractor and star of DIY Network’s "I Hate My Yard". Through her work, she transforms people’s unused yard space into a personal paradise.
Sara has always had a passion for doing rather than watching. “When I was young I would sew doll clothes out of my old T-shirts, draw, paint and dig in the dirt,” she remembers. Now in her career she gets to combine her passions of art and nature – and bring all her know-how and experience to you!
Sara will be presenting at the OKC Home + Outdoor Living Show on March 24-26 at the State Fair Park. To see her in person in OKC and hear more about transforming your yard space you can buy tickets online

Bendrick will offer top tips for landscaping include fixes for anyone from the budget-conscious to the budget-busters:
- Keep up with maintenance. This simple tip can help improve your curb appeal, make your home look cleaner and often doesn’t take much time or money!
- Spend time on your home’s entrance. From welcome mats to a splashy front door color to flowering potted plants, first impressions matter!
- Incorporate trends into the space, don’t make it define the space. Use a pallet to create an herb garden, but think twice before building an entire seating area out of the wood.
- Splurge on mature trees. The up-front investment can lead to rewards both immediate and long-term. Large trees can add property value, help keep your house cool and help turn any yard into an oasis.
Sara’s newly released book gives more insight into her special tips and tricks for transforming your space. Entitled “Big Impact Landscaping: 28 DIY Projects You Can Do on a Budget to Beautify and Add Value to Your Home,” she explains how you can make the best out of your space, affordably.
