StoneMakers On Turf Wars

In ‘Turf Wars’, neighbors battle to win $10,000 and the title of ‘Best Yard on the Block’ during an intense and fast-paced 48 hour period. Two teams, each led by ‘Turf Wars’ host Ahmed Hassan and his landscape experts, compete to transform their yards into spectacular outdoor living spaces. In the end, Ahmed and the neighbors decide the ‘winner’ and viewers get to see two amazing yard transformations.

For this challenge, Team One, led by the Stonemakers crew, is ready to tackle their yard challenge. First, poured concrete is carved and molded to mimic the natural and authentic look of flagstone, tree trunks and boulders. The Stonemakers team also creates a backyard waterfall, a redwood pavilion with tree-trunk posts and some beautifully carved flagstone seat walls. Across the neighborhood, Team Two turns a forgotten side yard into a synthetic bocce oasis with oversized pergola out of wood and corrugated metal.

Jason Walls, of Brickwalls Construction, was instrumental in gaining the attention of the show producers, leading to the invitation of Stonemakers to Turf Wars.  Jason has been a Stonemakers dealer since March of 2010 and has mastered the artistry, form and function inherent in the Stonemakers process.

Be sure to tune in.
