As a waterscape landscape designer and builder for more than 25 years, Billy Derian has set many of the most exciting trends in exterior improvement seen today. The yards of Southern California acted as Billy D’s venue for higher learning as his design skills were honed by doing every aspect of the labor by hand until the concepts were perfected. Digging trenches, plumbing, installing hardscapes, masonry, rebar placement and more gave him an appreciation for the “nuts and bolts,” while self-studying global architecture molded his sense of style and individuality. Winner of HGTV’s Landscaper’s Challenge and of numerous IPSA design awards, Billy’s talents are always in high demand from Hollywood’s elite to middle-class American families. Whether the project demands the big tough guy, loveable Teddy Bear or the creative expert, Billy D is the guy for the job. On DIY Network’s new series Extra Yardage, Billy D transforms neglected decks, patios and yards into world-class outdoor entertainment spaces, while giving viewers a new look at life outside the box.
