DIY Yard Crashers Park Ridge, IL

1 Design Group and “Yard Crashers,” seen on HGTV and DIY networks, have teamed up to crash the back yard of a deserving homeowner in the Chicagoland area.  If you have never seen the show before, it works likes this.  The host of the show, Ahmad Hassan, strolls around a home improvement store looking for one lucky homeowner who is in desperate need of a new landscape.  Once that person is found, they bring in a landscape designer and devise a plan for the total transformation.  What’s the catch, you’re thinking?  It is completed in just two days!

Perfect for this job was lead landscape designer and contractor, Michael Anthony.  Originally from Texas, he is bringing out all the big dogs and backing up the statement, “Everything is bigger in Texas!”  Michael is always challenging himself, and this being first show out of their home state, it is the biggest footprint this show has ever seen.  Building a new covered patio, installing 1250 sq ft of Cobblestone pavers in two days, a fire pit and tons of plants, we had our work cut out for us!  You will see a blank slate transformed into a backyard retreat.  It is action-packed with many upgrades and beautiful elements!  Be sure and click on the link below this cool clip  to watch the full episode and the gallery to see photos!
