Do you hate your yard? Meet Sara Bendrick, designer, licensed landscape contractor, and TV host of DIY Network’s I Hate My Yard. She’s passionate about art and nature, and has a deep appreciation for all living things. This landscape-loving guru is visiting us at the Salt Lake Tribune Home + Garden Show and just in time for spring.

Sara Bendrick

I love that I have the opportunity to combine nature with a built environment to create a sense of place. I have always been interested in horticulture & art. Designing landscapes allows me to combine both of my passions. I feel very fortunate to have a career that can combine artistic expression & environmental awareness with purpose & function.

With her creative skill set and outgoing personality, Sara helps people realize the potential in their exterior spaces. Currently, she owns a successful landscaping design business in San Diego called Sarita Landscapes. This year she’ll also be releasing her first book, Big Impact Landscaping, which you can pre-order.


  1. Keep up with curb appeal year-round by making maintenance a habit.
  2. When making improvements, spend time on the entrance of the home. It’s the first thing people will see that represents you and your home.
  3. It’s fun to play with trends, they can really add something to a space, without defining it.
For more on Sara including some of her design before and afters check out her website. She will be live talking DIY’s I Hate My Yard on Friday, March 10th at 6PM, and Saturday, March 11th at 12PM on the Design Stage presented by Xfinity.
