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!

Backyard Zen Zones

The Moss Brothers take one very bland backyard and transform it into 3 sophisticated outdoor rooms that are perfect for entertaining. A composite bamboo deck is topped with an open pergola structure flanked by bamboo stenciled metal dividers and a cozy fireplace. The patio gets a big splash of color from interlocking slate tiles, a planter bed filled with golden daffodils and a sea green dry streambed topped with a peaceful monolithic fountain. Oversized concrete steppers lead visitors out to the repurposed redwood deck.

Upscale Wine Lodge

A wine bar skinned with gun-blue sheet metal is surrounded by reclaimed fence boards arranged in a random quilted pattern and adorned with antlers to kick up the wild game appeal. The refurbished PVC deck is the perfect spot to take in the whole yard while toasting the peaceful, alluring new yard.
