'Backyard Takeover': Can Jamie Durie re-establish the historic value in Hage family's 40-year-old backyard?
Jamie Durie is known to transform the backyard into a place that is inviting and not scary. The latest task up his sleeves is to help the Hage family that consists of husband and wife, Tiffanie and Preston Hage, along with their sons, Ashton and Ethan. While the family has a big backyard, they felt overwhelmed and confused about where to start the renovation.
Ethan revealed that he once played football in the backyard and ended up getting 20 stitches as he was injured. Tiffanie admitted that the backyard has not been a safe place for the family to spend time. She further revealed that the house was of her grandparents who had lived in the place 40 years ago. Tiffanie stated that the family made the decision of moving to the house when they were hit hard financially. Luckily, they had the house to turn out. While the family has been in a better state now, they had been unable to put aside the time needed for renovation. Jamie knew that the family needed help and he started by looking at what could be done with the garden.
He noticed that the garden had a lot of historic value as there were antiques that were hard to find. While he decided to keep some of the elements intact, he also wanted a garden that everyone loved. Ethan revealed he wanted a space where his friends could enjoy it. Ashton wanted a golf course area. Preston wanted a flower area that could help one relax. Meanwhile, Stephanie was looking for an area that allowed all the friends and family to come together. Hearing all their requests, Jamie made sure he delivered exactly what they had been looking for. He created a space for everyone to enjoy and also had a secret project involved.
For his secret project, he made an outdoor kitchen that would allow the family to cook and come together. At the same time, the family cleaned the lake that had been a breeding ground for mosquitoes for a long time. The Hage family was shocked to see the transformation. They invited their friends and family to see their backyard and their reactions were priceless. Everyone was surprised to see the transformations and were excited about spending time there.
'Backyard Takeover' airs on Saturdays at 9 pm ET on HGTV.
