A large overgrown tree in the middle of these homeowners' backyard makes this space unusable. Matt and his team Crash into the yard like a Texas stampede to clear out the space and start anew. First up, an extra-large cedar pergola skirted by a curvy deck brings back major style and function to this neglected yard. The homeowners' love of outdoor cooking inspires Matt to roll in a massive Texas style smoker framed by arbors defining a more upscale entrance to the space. Additional entertaining space comes in the form of a new decomposed flagstone patio and bench seating made from pavers with a fire pit as a focal point. The landscaping intervention finishes off with lush native Texas grasses, annual plants for color and an edible container garden outlining the yard.
