On DIYs new one-hour special Backyard Blowout, we help homeowners Jason Cruze and his wife, Allison, turn their simple wooden patio into an amazing backyard - all in one week - for his birthday. Host Jay Baker and his crew converge on the homeowners' backyard and create an outdoor living space anyone would be proud to have - with a few special amenities. The yard, which is really a simple sitting area, is completely transformed with a stone fire pit, hand-hewn pergola, pizza oven, flat-screen TV, dining area and whiskey barrel wet bar.
