Paul and the crew tear out the old and replace it with a new multi-level deck.

With spots for lounging, bbqing, dining and two sets of stairs leading into the yard you have a space this family will love for years to come. The final result is spectacular.

Prashanth and Neerajah have a unique reason for wanting to transform their neglected backyard: they want to use it for their wedding reception. The problem is...it's a little overgrown. OK a lot overgrown. But this busy young couple knows what they need: a low maintenance space without a blade of grass in sight. Using an exotic hardwood called red balau Paul and his team say "I do" and transform an unloved space into the most adored spot in the property. And after never having to cut grass again they lived happily ever.
Brian and Tanya have a unique request: they want a two-tiered deck to enjoy their backyard, but they want it designed around their family's winter hockey rink spot. Challenge accepted. Paul takes advantage of this tricky backyard and creates an upper deck with a screened in family room and a lower deck with a hot tub, bar and lounge, centered around the hockey rink space so parents can watch their kids play...except Paul isn't a big fan of waiting for the winter. Apparently there is a way to have your deck and play hockey too.
Raun and Jasprit love travelling and want a deck to transport them to their favourite getaway. They have an ambitious plan to have their townhouse deck feel like a beach club in Miami or St. Tropez.

Did we mention there are three gas fire features as well? Different and daring, this is one transformation you don't want to miss.
Lori and Ross had an upper level deck that fell down a couple of years ago. Now they pretty much avoid their backyard. This couple loves funky and wants a space that's peaceful and different. Pretty much the opposite of what they have now. Paul and the team decide to take all of the square angles out of the yard with circles and curves. And build a pergola. But there are pergolas and then there are intricate circular pergolas with cedar slats and steel wire suspension. The pergola is spectacular. Throw in a three-season room, curved staircase, fire pit lounge and bbq area. This is a backyard they'll never want to leave.
Kevin and Pauline's large yard is a blank slate...and they want to use the entire slate. In this episode we see an incredible transformation. Paul and the crew battle rain, mud and a million details. Jeff takes every square inch of space without a deck and incorporates stone pavers and stone steps. The end result is a private oasis with a full outdoor kitchen, granite topped bars, a pool with waterfalls, pergolas and an enclosed cabana. Spectacular.
Jim and Sofia recently sold their family cottage. This retired couple loves the outdoors and wants a contemporary backyard space that feels like a cottage escape.

Who needs to sit in weekend traffic?
Margaret and Dan have a large private backyard they love. The problem is they have no way to get to it from their current deck. The challenge: how do you get from a top deck to a bottom deck without having stairs taking up valuable space? Answer: a spiral staircase. Paul and the team come into this project inspired and build an incredible space that includes an upper deck with a metal spiral staircase leading to a lower deck with a hot tub area (with a motorized gazebo-like cover), bar and lounge, which then leads to a circular aerial structure with a circular stone pad beneath. Now that they can get to their yard, they'll never want to leave.

And the results are simply amazing.
Sam and Irene have a small backyard but big ideas. This couple loves to entertain and frequently throw large dinner parties.
