Backyard makeover with Tim and Mat

Meet the chippies from Melbourne, Tim and Mat, as they take on the backyard for this week on Make It Yours. These guys love a challenge – and boy do they have their work cut out for them transforming this bland, neglected backyard!

First order of the day is to remove the tired old artificial turf and try to hide that ugly concrete. Once that’s done, the boys are planning to lay some pebble resurfacer, install a deck, lay some fresh turf and plant up a storm.

“There’s a golden opportunity here to make the space feel more intimate,” says Tim. “We want people to walk out here and for there to be a bit of ‘wow factor.’” And by the look of their plans – which also include painting the exterior of the house and updating fences and garden borders – they’re on the right track. “The backyard really needs a massive overhaul,” Mat adds. “We want to get in there and pull these big bushes out, and give the whole thing a do-over.”

Luckily, the boys will have some help from the team of Bunnings, who will be on hand to assist with and show viewers how easy it is to achieve the same looks at home. Together they’ll dress the space with outdoor furniture and create a beautiful atmosphere courtesy of some do-it-yourself vertical gardens and mood lighting. Trust us – it’s going to be one heck of a transformation!

Check out this week’s ep – and enjoy Tim and Mat’s amazing transformation!
