Elegant Outdoor Living
Episode DYCR-610HSee all Episodes
Ahmed is crashing Chicago, and he finds a couple who craves an outdoor living area that's perfect for all seasons. Their current backyard is a large, open space, and they want a place to eat, drink and relax -- even during those windy Chicago days. The Yard Crashers crew starts things off with a custom-built stone bar and a grill with a permeable stone seating area. Next, the addition of sienna stone will define a new lower level in the yard, and the team also brings in a cedar pergola. Also new to the space are an outdoor TV and a wood-burning stone fireplace. Newly installed cedar fencing and 1,000-pound autumn blaze maple trees create a private retreat for this couple, and the entire yard -- giant trees, seating areas and pathways -- is all lit for nighttime entertaining.
