Major Curb Appeal

Host Jason Cameron worked with winning homeowners Randi and Tim Riefenberg to turn their desperate front yard into a summer oasis. The home now has major curb appeal with a fresh coat of bright white paint, attractive landscaping and blooming plants.

Inviting New Walkway

Blooming hydrangeas, a new stone path and charming porch decor greet guests on their way to the front door.

Ultimate Summer Patio

Rani and Tim's new stone patio is ready for summer entertaining with three designed areas: a bar and grill station, dining table and an outdoor living room with a fireplace. 

Natural Privacy Walls

It may seem like an odd choice to have an outdoor kitchen in the front yard, but Randi and Tim have natural privacy walls, including giant rock boulders and pine trees, that hide these areas from street view.

Stunning Outdoor Living Room

The most dramatic area of Randi and Tim's new yard is the sunken outdoor living room with a new, giant stone fireplace.

Gorgeous Stone Fireplace

The new fireplace area is perfect for summer s'mores and hotdogs but also transitions into a relaxing spot for fall with plenty of cozy seating and a rustic coffee table.

Dining Alfresco

The patio also features an outdoor kitchen with a huge dining table, bar and grill station. Black metal furniture was used to tie the two areas together.

Coastal Tablescape

The outdoor dining table pops with sea-glass blue drinkware, sky-blue ceramics and teal pitchers. 

Beach-Chic Details

The tablescape's coastal details continue with printed paisley napkins and beaded napkin rings.

Al Fresco Dining

The dining table at AMDL features a coastal color-palette with sea-glass blue plates and glasses and jute chair pillows.

Rustic Outdoor Bar

Randi and Tim's DIY bar was made with corrugated steel and a bar top from Tim's reclaimed wood collection. The piece used is hundreds of years old. Metal stools tie the rustic-industrial look together. 

Coastal Bar Decor

The beach theme from the dining area continues on the bar top with a vase wrapped in jute rope and an ice bucket with rope handles and metal anchor charm. 

Plenty of Seating

The new patio is ready for big parties with plenty of seating areas, including handmade reclaimed wood benches made by the homeowners.

Even More Seating

The new front stoop features a bench with comfy pillows, rug and plants. The additional outdoor living area could be overflow seating for big patio parties. 

Stunning at Twilight

The new patio comes to life at sunset with several strings of bistro lights and a roaring fire in the outdoor fireplace.

Kickoff Cookout

After two long days of hard work, Randi and Tim welcomed neighbors, friends and family to their new yard with a cookout party complete with a burger bar and tons of toppings.

Rustic-Industrial Trays

These shallow, metal trays match the rustic-industrial bar and are great for displaying cookout goodies like corn on the cob. 

Ready to Party Patio

Randi and Tim said they've learned so much and are proud of their DIY work on the patio. They can't wait to entertain friends and family this summer. "The party is going to be here," said Tim. "We're going to enjoy every single day out here."
