Judges' Design Tips: The Longest Yard

Renowned interior designers and HGTV hosts Genevieve Gorder, Candice Olson and Vern Yip offer their exclusive design tips from the Design Star set.

  • With only 36 hours and $25,000, Antonio, Dan, Lonni and Torie transform a barren backyard into a modern oasis for the Zimmer family.
  • To create a clean, modern pool area, the designers removed the brick surround and poured a simple concrete deck.
  • The Zimmer family wants a space where they can entertain, so the designers add an incredible barbeque that includes a gas grill, refrigerator and extra storage.
  • The Zimmers have a young son, so it's important that he have a place to play. The designers find a great play set and place it in the shade of their mature trees.
