Based only on clues they've learned about the homeowner from inside the house, Jake and Joel Moss turn this yard into a 50's diner with edge. They add a concrete patio, a 50's style diner bar, a privacy screen of galvanized steel and airbrushed skulls, a motorcycle fire feature, and a trampoline area for the kid. Without properly thinking it through or consulting his brother, Joel decides to stray from Jakes design and sink the trampoline 3 feet into the ground for esthetics. It quickly becomes a disaster project and Joel admits to Jake he is in over his head!
Based only on clues they've learned about the homeowner, from inside the house, Jake and Joel Moss use reclaimed trusses from a field to shelter a bar area with a wine barrel wall and decomposed granite floors. A rendition of the homeowner's artwork is stenciled onto a concrete slab and an arbor leads into a nature area. A comedy of errors, and arguments occurs as Jake and Joel attempt to build the fence and arbor before being bailed out by their hired help.
Five minutes inside the house give Jake and Joel Moss all the clues they need to turn an overgrown backyard jungle into a modern day Garden of Eden. The guys recycle plow disks into a gargantuan spherical water feature, plow hooks into a cozy hanging chair, a wine barrel into an upscale compost bin and granite rocks into a fire pit and seating area. The result is a chill atmosphere in a yard that will feed belly and soul.
Demolition chews up hours for contractors Jake and Joel Moss, as they excavate tons of buried concrete from a beat up yard. Under the gun and with the help of their crew, these two brothers pull off a backyard makeover with a modern, organic, industrial vibe. The yard includes huge planters made from metal culverts, an eight-foot-tall driftwood wall, seating made from reclaimed materials and a resurfaced concrete patio. Together, these elements create a backyard modern museum that has the homeowners delighted.
Jake and Joel go vintage-chic as they tackle the backyard of an aspiring theater actress who likes to party. In two days, Brothers Moss and crew will pour a film reel concrete pad, build two film strip bar/barbeque half-circles with concrete countertops, and create an impressive eight-foot high water feature that repurposes old roller-type conveyor belts from a fruit packing facility. Add original artwork and a painter's nook, then witness a homeowner's reaction that's worthy of a best actress nod.
Contractors Jake and Joel Moss go vertical with white stucco walls and a water feature made from reclaimed fence boards and a rusty old milk jug. To top it off, this backyard makeover calls for a flagstone patio and a traditional Greek oven, creating a Mediterranean seaside village vibe. With time running short, a mistake threatens the brother's chances of completing the project before the homeowner's return.
Jake and Joel Moss give it the old college try building a fun-filled back yard for a group of 20-somethings. The fun starts with a zip line extending from one end of the yard to the other. On the way down, adventure seekers will pass oversized spool tables shaded with satellite dish umbrellas, a 10-foot bar with beer keg stools, and a vertical fire feature with a spinning top.
Daunted by the sheer size of this flat, featureless backyard, Jake & Joel Moss take it on anyway with a need to succeed. They turn an existing debris-filled hole into a massive, natural eco-system pond stocked with big catfish and bass--with a sandy beach, cantilevered redwood dock and giant boulders along the water's edge. Figuring out the homeowners have a child, an overhead aircraft-inspired redwood tree house will make the kid's imagination take off-if they can finish all this before the family returns.
Jake and Joel Moss take on their most intricate build to date with an Islamic styled family gathering place. A twelve foot tall domed cabana structure is the focal point in this yard that leads to a sixteen sided water feature. In front, a flagstone and sod covered dining patio is topped with a reclaimed table creating a special place for every member of the family.
Licensed contractors Jake & Joel Moss step in where the homeowners apparently fear to tread, taking on a large, dog-run yard full of nothing but soggy grass and broken concrete. Jake & Joel gamble that a privacy fence made from pallets and woven metal, a new spa with hand-painted mural beverage cabinet, custom buffet table, turbine engine fire feature, and glass-topped lighted bar will help get this engaged couple's marriage off to a fun start.
There will be blood-curdling screams of joy when a family of film buffs return home to a backyard inspired by several movie genres. The Moss brothers and their crew create a fantasy space that blends entertainment, art, and relaxation for everyone. Three areas set the scene: the refurbished deck that houses a TV, barbeque, super long reclaimed wood bar faced with ledge cut stone and sunken lights; along with the oversized crop circle stepping stones that lead to a recycled tractor-rim fire pit and seating circle; and finally the surreal towering twisted metal and rock art sculpture that doubles as a bench. Bordering the space are half-moon metal partition-walls embedded with blasts of Kryptonite-AKA recycled windshield glass.
The Brothers Moss take on an overgrown mess of a yard and create a tropical paradise custom built for casual gatherings. A metal bamboo archway beckons visitors to stroll down the dolomite pathways with retro hanging lights stuffed full of Christmas lights. Further back, a 6-sided palapa and seating area provides a nice place to suck down an adult beverage, while an art-infused barbeque/fire pit area finds inspiration from the homeowners eclectic style with chairs made from the body parts of mannequins.
Jake and Joel go all out in a search for eclectic industrial materials like plastic drain grates and electrical support towers to bring a stunning look to what began as a lackluster backyard. They balance the hard edge of plastic and metal with plants that attract nectar-loving insects. The guys build a rocking metal butterfly sculpture, a tower-of-power shade structure, and a bar and barbeque area complete with concrete countertops.
