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

With one family member having recently returned from being deployed overseas and another caring for a young child, Jake and Joel shoot for a low maintenance, high usability yard that reflects the homeowner's love for wine and weaponry. The yard's focal point is an elegant water feature built out of sliced wine bottles and a burgundy barrel catch basin. 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.

Architectural Outdoor Courtyard

The Moss Brothers take on a mid century modern makeover in the style of the home's architecture. The yard is huge and the design is overly ambitious for a 2-day makeover. They'll build an oversized bamboo composite deck and then add large timber walls with shelves and a vertical slatted backdrop, a brick fire feature with a stainless steel hood, uber-long brick planters, and a bird lover's dream of a water feature complete with two sandhill cranes frolicking in the pond.

Artsy English Pub

Jake and Joel Moss turn a blank slate yard into an artsy pub inspired by the homeowners' love for beer and giraffe art. The existing garden is expanded and terraced up the slope, and a concrete patio creates entertaining space with colorful groundcover softening the look. Privacy walls bring in shade and a modern wood slat backdrop for the bar, which is dressed up with a metal giraffe art panel. Along the back wall a large Japanese maple becomes a focal point flanked with wood benches and large giraffe-print mosaics made from bottle caps.

Vintage French Country Garden

Jake sees bathtubs, Joel sees plants. Doug sees a pergola that looks like France. A yard that begins as nothing but dirt and damaged flagstone is completely transformed with an eco-friendly deck covered by a pergola wrapped in carved pilasters, a travertine firebox, rustic stenciled pews and a large sandblasted dining table illuminated by a blingy chandelier. Dog-friendly synthetic turf lends a pop of color to the scene, while the claw foot tub water feature set atop the repurposed pavers provides a perfect splash of serenity.

A flagstone patio outlined in moss plantings becomes home to three cubist water features with reclaimed seat surrounds, while the entire picture is enclosed with unique minimalist plantings that add to the drama of the stunning setting.
