Jake and Joel Moss take backyard gardening to a new level in a farm-to-table inspired backyard. A beefy pergola with a garden roof looks down on a massive outdoor kitchen complete with butcher-block countertops and a gourmet barbecue.

A custom dining table made from reclaimed wood looks out on a sea of raised industrial planter beds housing everything from insect-repelling flowers to fresh fruits and vegetables to create a truly sustainable living space.
Jake and Joel Moss turn a massive blank slate of a yard into an outdoor lounge inspired by the homeowners' love for wine and entertainment.

Modular planters, ample seating and rustic landscaping bring a taste of wine country to the backyard.
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.

Light towers and lush landscaping lead the way to an inviting spa that rounds out this modern relaxation zone.

The Moss brothers take inspiration from the homeowners Pacific Island heritage to completely transform their backyard.

Jake and Joel clue in on the homeowners love of all things travel to bring some international intrigue into a bland backyard.

Two art professionals who've created a masterpiece on the interior of their home will turn their backyard over to the Moss brothers for a complete overhaul.

To add to the period feel, the yard is finished off with vibrant plants and surrounded by red lava rock.
