You never know what you'll be bringing home from the home improvement store. You go in for grass seed but come home with new patio chairs and a bag of cement. If you're lucky enough, you could also bring home a professional landscape contractor. On DIY Network's Yard Crashers, expert Chris Lambton waits at stores looking for the perfect weekend warriors who could definitely use his help. Once he finds his target, Chris and his team follow the surprised shoppers home and completely transform their yards.
Chris and his team descend on Blog Cabin 2016 to turn an empty side yard into a recreational destination complete with a stilted guest retreat, two-tiered deck with custom lounge chairs and a sand volleyball court.
Allen and Lily's uninviting yard is haggard and ignored, so Matt comes to their rescue with a Mediterranean oasis design. They want a place to hang out with friends and family, so Matt gives them a large deck complete with a barbecue island and a reclaimed dining table. He also adds an amazing stone water and fire feature as the center point, then builds a paver patio adjacent to it as well as a custom day bed with a pergola.
A dirt pile of a backyard with an old shed and dying plants is transformed into an entertainer's dream. An unused space quickly becomes everyone's hangout when a cascading rock pond takes center stage. Also featured is a huge paver patio, a one-of-a-kind farmhouse dining table, a reclaimed wood BBQ cooking station, furniture and games.
Sophie's soggy, sloping yard needs help, so she pleads for Matt Blashaw to come home with her. He designs a usable space for grilling, dining and lounging, all with an English garden vibe. He also fixes a few problems he encounters along the way, like installing a few retaining walls to level the space, adding drainage to move the water away and raising and reinforcing the deck posts. Finally, Matt adds a staircase for access and a composting area to give Sophie the ultimate outdoor space.
This dark and uninviting yard has these homeowners staying indoors. Luckily, Matt agrees to go home with them and delivers a design that will allow them to live outdoors. First he installs a huge multi-tiered deck with a large dining table and a concrete paver patio with a fire pit and comfy sofa. Then he adds a sheer descent water feature with integrated bench seating and a chunky pergola with a custom wood and steel bar.
Yard Crashers is in Kansas City, Missouri, where a rotten deck in a hot and very small backyard is transformed into a quaint outdoor living room. In two days, a brand new deck is installed along with a pergola with retractable awnings to provide much-needed shade over a custom outdoor sofa with a built-in ice chest. Privacy screens with vibrant plants, a modern fire pit and a granite patio space finish off this outdoor room and make it ready for entertaining.
Emily and Bryan have a barren yard with an existing shed so, instead of fixing it, Matt and his crew make it a feature. They build floating decks around three reflecting pools and install a new pergola to create some much-needed shade, transforming the space into a modern oasis with a peaceful feel.
A small and cluttered backyard with dead plants and ugly concrete turns into a beer garden fit for a home brewer! Sophisticated steel planters and giant concrete pavers surrounded by turf clean up what was once a mess. Plus, a built-in barbecue and a custom bar bring an industrial tap system to center stage.
The team transforms a barren patio space into a modern hangout. What was once just a deck and dirt landscape gets a modified shade structure, steel water feature, living wall and bocce court. The addition of lush green plants and a custom metal fire feature creates one inviting party pad.
An Orange County backyard with zero purpose and tons of weeds is transformed into the ultimate hangout with a custom hammock sofa, water feature and two-tiered deck with a barbecue smoker. Plus, a pottery plant wall gives this backyard some needed color and life.
In Orange County, Calif., Matt finds a couple who have been renovating their fixer upper but neglecting their backyard; Matt transforms the space into an industrial-modern retreat with a dining area, a gabion water feature and a galvanized fire pit.
Matt and the crew tackle a messy and cluttered backyard filled with with broken patio furniture and uneven pavers, turning it into a space with a custom outdoor kitchen, a rolling Tiki bar and a high-top table.
