About The Show

You never know what you'll be bringing home from the home improvement store. You go in for grass seed but come home with new patio chairs and a bag of cement. If you're lucky enough, you could also bring home a professional landscape contractor. On DIY Network's Yard Crashers, expert Ahmed Hassan waits at stores looking for the perfect weekend warriors who could definitely use his help. Once he finds his target, Ahmed and his team follow the surprised shoppers home and completely transform their yards. It's ambush landscaping at its best!

Eclectic Dining Space

This Houston couples' back yard is a barren wasteland, the only ones who venture out there are their two dogs. With the mild climate, this couple yearns for a space to entertain and dine outside, but want it to reflect their funky personalities. Matt takes the challenge and delivers an elegant space with eclectic overtones. He adds a 500 square foot paver patio with cedar pergola and a multicolor wood burning fire place. He drops glass pendants from cedar posts over a huge cedar table topped with zinc and adds artificial turf and bamboo around the perimeter for privacy.

Beach Resort Backyard

These roommates are tired of their boring yard that's bare except for a hammock. They're looking for an fun yard that reflects their personalities and Matt and his crew deliver! He elongates the sad patio pad by building a wood deck over it. He improves the flow of the yard by adding a palapa as the gathering space and a hanging bed as the relaxing area. A ledge stone water wall is added for tranquility and a bamboo privacy screen is built to hide the massive A/C unit. Finally, lush plants, sod and gravel pathways are added to complete the look of this upscale beachy backyard.

Rustic in the Redwoods

This Sierra foothills yard is plain and boring and doesn't reflect the beautiful environment around it. So Matt transforms it to reflect its surroundings by building a redwood deck and pergola with cooking space and a dining area. He adds a custom fire pit and water feature along with veggie boxes and redwood trees set along a rustic metal and slat fence. A unique tin wall provides a colorful pop and a meandering path encircles the entire space.
