    Hillbillies just don’t get enough credit. Oh sure, maybe the first thing that comes to mind is banjos and drinking beer in the woods. However, when it comes to home renovations, it’s another story! Reddit user, TheAccidentOf85, had a very challenging backyard. But he transformed it into something worth toasting moonshine to. Have a look and see how his “Hillbilly Backyard” (as it was jokingly called) transformed into a thing a beauty.

    To get an idea of just how challenging this project was, here are a few pictures of the beginning terrain.

    Look at that yard now! It took 2.5 months and working on weekends. However, he saved $15,000 by doing it himself.
