18 Oct Backyard Paradise
The biggest pool. The biggest firepit. The first chicken coop! There are a lot to love about this week’s Backyard reveals.
Kirsty & Jesse
Winners of the week, Kirsty and Jesse, poured all their funds into the biggest backyard on The Block – creating all sorts of drama and accusations along the way. But the end result was definitely worth it! We loved their resort-style backyard with the enormous undercover area that included Gyprock Aquachek for extra protection. The firepit area and large bench seat overlooked a huge pool. And we thought the chicken coop was a great touch.
Mitch & Mark
Block Faves, Mitch and Mark, went tropical using a design by award-winning Christian Jenkins to help them create their lush oasis. We loved the connection between the living spaces and the green backyard, with a plunge pool, cabana and three large dragon trees. A kitchen garden down the side was a great touch too, including fruit trees and vegie pods.
Ronnie & Georgia
True to form, Ronnie and Georgia created a sophisticated coastal-style backyard that perfectly matched their interiors. We are big fans of this couple, with their commitment to a stylish and cohesive design. It was great to see their living area opening up to an entertaining deck (with barbecue), swimming pool, firepit and long bench. We loved the feature wall of PGH Bricks too.
Josh & Luke
Twins Josh and Luke struggled with budgets this week, especially because they had the second biggest backyard on The Block. Their generous L-shaped outdoors space included a relaxed private garden at the back of the house, with firepit and lawn for the kids, while the main deck at the side was all about their great entertainment area overlooking the pool.
Tanya & Vito
Tanya and Vito kept it low maintenance in their backyard with a large deck and entertainment area. A barbecue and lounging zone overlooked their pool, along with well-chosen mature trees. We know they are saving up for their large front yard, so this space was all about practicality, even including a clothesline down the side.
