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!

Rustic Asian Retreat

Two natural stone seat walls are topped off with a custom grape stake trellis that represents the elephant's tusks. A flagstone walkway leads to a fire feature made of reclaimed tractor parts, as boulders and lush landscaping are placed perfectly to complete this yard.

The landscape includes a sun-baked flagstone pathway leading to an open pergola held up by beefy iron pillars. This destination is adorned with a huge country table, sturdy douglas fir chairs with metal fish skeleton backs, and a sheer descent water wall cascading into a re-purposed iron basin. Rounding out the serene scene are plantings of large olive trees, Italian cypress, and two large lawns.
