Lufkin Teacher Gets A Much-Needed Makeover

The winner of KTRE's Living Spaces Backyard contest had a big party to show off a much-needed backyard makeover.

Garrett Primary teacher, Jamie Mahan, said her students have been enjoying her new pool almost more than she has. That's only a small part of her new and improved backyard.

Mahan's backyard is now decorated with flowers, plants, Tiki torches, a ceiling fan, and a state-of-the-art barbecue pit with a refrigerator.

"It was just really plain," Mahan said. "We had a nice big tree and that was it. I love yardwork; I love being in the yard, and it's a great place to have all of our friends to come and party."
