The lush backyard presented some design and construction challenges due to how much the yard dropped off at the rear of the lot. The builder will have to raise the rear corner of the lot up by six feet to create the desired lower lawn area.
One of the elements of this backyard makeover was an art studio that can double as guest quarters. It sits on a raised turf area, with grassy lawn adjacent: perfect lounging for the owners' big dogs when the artist is at work.
This backyard makeover from DIYNetwork's Yard Crashers is a multi-purpose space with a wooden pergola covering an entertaining space with a retro metal dining set. Further in to the yard, a custom bar with wooden bar stools overloooks a water feature and small garden bed.

After the backyard makeover at DIY Networkâ€™s Yard Crashers, homeowners Brooke and Zach Taylor of Auburn, CA now have a lush and vibrant backyard for their entire family to enjoy- a stark contrast from the rocky hillside that took up much of their yard before! The transformation by licensed contractor Matt Blashaw and his crew includes a metal and wood pergola, hillside creek water feature, privacy screen with wood and metal, a Big Green Egg smoker and custom cart, and a firepit with seating. The fire pit sits on a raised platform with a rock wall boder. Two washtubs filled with rock form the fire pit itself which sets on a bed of decomposed granite. The pit is surrounded by custom metal privacy screens. (after)(detail)
