Searching for advice on how to update their patio, Eric and Mona Lisa Valenzuela posted a picture of their backyard on HGTV.com's Rate My Space and got only a 1.3 rating but lots of valuable feedback. Now, they dream of a space that's designed with family function in mind, along with a romantic vibe including a cozy fireplace and a barbecue. They've also asked host Angelo Surmelis and his team to take a cue from the way that they've decorated the inside of their house when choosing furniture and accessories for the great outdoors.
