WAUSAU (WAOW) -- We now have a winner for our Extreme Yard Makeover contest!
The Wake Up Wisconsin crew tried to pay Melanie and Tony Guckenberg a visit on Friday to congratulate them, but we just missed them.
The Guckenberg's bought their home in 2009. Melanie says the previous owners spent about four hours a day tending to the garden, but it got away from them when their health started to decline.
The Guckenberg's are doing what they can to restore its beauty, but Melanie is more than eight months pregnant. She was also recently laid off, and says this yard makeover is an absolute blessing.
We will follow the progress of the makeover throughout the next month.
