This rocky, hillside back yard was transformed by licensed contractor Matt Blashaw and his crew. Upgrades included tiered landscaping, a covered dining area and an intimate sitting area next to a washtub firepit. 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)
The fire pit is a stone's throw from the outdoor kitchen. Complete with a refrigerator, grill and durable zinc countertops, the kitchen is set for outdoor entertaining. Reclaimed wood gives the barbecue station a rustic, weathered look –– the perfect complement to the rugged fire pit.
