What if you gave a couple of landscape professionals 48 hours to completely redo a backyard? No problem, right? But there's a catch. What if they don't even get to see the yard until the day before the job, and were not allowed to meet the homeowner? On DIY Network's "Yardcore", landscape professionals Jake and Joel Moss are ready to set homeowners up with the yard of a lifetime, and take on all the challenges of making it happen. They will only get a quick tour of the yard and a five-minute tour of the home's interior to get clues, and then make it all happen in 48 hours — without ever meeting the homeowner until the final reveal! For one lucky homeowner willing to take a chance, this could be like winning the landscape lottery. Yardcore is a landscaping series that makes the impossible possible! (Source: DIY Network)
Jake sees bathtubs, Joel sees plants. Doug sees a pergola that looks like France. A yard that begins as nothing but dirt and damaged flagstone is completely transformed with an eco-friendly deck covered by a pergola wrapped in carved pilasters, a travertine firebox, rustic stenciled pews and a large sandblasted dining table illuminated by a blingy chandelier. Dog-friendly synthetic turf lends a pop of color to the scene, while the claw foot tub water feature set atop the repurposed pavers provides a perfect splash of serenity.
Jake and Joel Moss turn a massive blank slate of a yard into an outdoor lounge inspired by the homeowners' love for wine and entertainment. Three wine bottle walls provide the perfect amount of privacy to enjoy the terraced BBQ station and wine bar. A contemporary fire bowl sits atop a patio of pavers interwoven with artificial turf to lend to the modern feel. Modular planters, ample seating, and rustic landscaping bring a taste of wine country to this backyard.
