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!

Japanese Zen Garden

In order to fill a forgotten backyard with peace and tranquility, Jake and Joel tap into the essence of the Far East for inspiration. In two days, they'll build a beautiful Asian inspired gathering place that blends traditional and modern design elements. It all starts with an intricately laid flagstone patio that creates the foundation for a kotatsu fire table and liquor shrine. Then, the existing storage shed gets transformed into a pagoda with a new roof ridge, curved eaves, shoji window, and a stunning gable. Landscape touches like a Zen sand garden, large boulders, and statuesque planters round out this mind blowing backyard.
