About the show

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!

A Taste of Tuscany

Five minutes inside this home give the Moss Brothers all the information they need to transform a huge empty expanse into a lovely slice of Tuscan inspired hillside. Jake and Joel easily identify the family of three young boys who love to fish and a mom and dad with a penchant for Italian design to draw inspiration for this dream backyard. The landscape includes a sun-baked flagstone pathway leading to an open pergola held up by beefy iron pillars. This destination is adorned with a huge country table, sturdy douglas fir chairs with metal fish skeleton backs, and a sheer descent water wall cascading into a re-purposed iron basin. Rounding out the serene scene are plantings of large olive trees, Italian cypress, and two large lawns.

Rubicon Trail

The brothers take inspiration from the Rubicon Trail, a well known passage used by off-road vehicle enthusiasts in California's High Sierras. They build a luxury campsite complete with an historic logging flume waterfall that spills into a serene pond, bring in huge mountain top boulders, fashion a firepit out of moss rocks that doubles as a barbeque, and forge a trailway big enough for a jeepster to park his rig on to enjoy the peace and quiet of the regal yet rustic space.
