  2. daryl fitz on July 23, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Good to see Roger’s better.

  3. Cook with Pat on July 23, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Kudos for the Video! Sorry for chiming in, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you heard about – Giyily Landscaping Yatty (should be on google have a look)? It is a good one off product for unlocking the secret to make money with landscaping minus the hard work. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my buddy got excellent success with it.

  4. sorrynotsorry on July 23, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Oh Rog you’ve done it again

  5. Trevor Schiavone on July 23, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Weeds and dead plants probably in a week.

  6. samurai331 on July 23, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Every garden needs a statement piece. Here’s a sad pine tree!

  7. PrimeSuperboy on July 23, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    That’s a beautiful looking yard!

  8. Adriana Castellanos on July 23, 2021 at 9:04 pm

  9. pasang Sherpa on July 23, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Amazing man.

  10. Samsng Device on July 23, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Dont forget to put a few ant eating plants. Fun to watch.

    Lol the wife’s face!

  13. Chris Phillips on July 23, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Watching this from the UK. Great little yard. Brilliant bit in landscaping 👌

  14. Dragon_Slayer6753 on July 23, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Now you just use fire

  15. MannyKunV on July 23, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    4:06 "you may have to do a little a bit of yeerly pooning on it"

    THATS LEWDDDDDDD~ /calls the horny police

  16. Miss Marie on July 23, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    He put them to work

  17. God Supports Abortion. Numbers 5:11-31 on July 23, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    This is all happening in real time and he’s just chaotically running around throwing shovels and wheelbarrows at them

  18. Lorenzo Ascali on July 23, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    I just stuck the tree in the corner without cutting slots in the root ball. That’s definitely an amateur mistake.

  19. ExPlay on July 23, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    How is proper drainage handled in a small back yard like this?

  20. IMM Lawn Care, Gardening on July 23, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    The end result looks great!

  21. Germán Moreno on July 23, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Many thanks, been searching for "landscaping designs for small yards" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Giyily Landscaping Yatty – (just google it ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my mate got great results with it.

  22. Koa T on July 23, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Roger: Throw some compost in there
    Lady: *proceeds to throw the compost over the fence 😂

  23. Igor Sidelkovsky on July 23, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    This was great, thanks, I have been researching "ideas for landscapes" for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Giyily Landscaping Yatty – (just google it ) ? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my brother in law got excellent results with it.

  24. Al Fries on July 23, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    I love this! I wish you had more urban yard videos

  25. joylesstiger on July 23, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Look at that gorejus char-troose!

  26. Pork Chop on July 23, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    “Alright Josie spread it out”

  27. clara gaither on July 23, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Can you do my backyard

  28. theoneandonlyvman on July 23, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    BIZARRE

  29. Lemons19902010 on July 23, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Turned out beautiful!

  30. alejandro blondell on July 23, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    This is glorious, I been tryin to find out about "photos of backyard landscaping ideas" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Giyily Landscaping Yatty – (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my buddy got great success with it.

  31. Frank Bowne on July 23, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Lol 😅…. when is that tree going to die?

  32. S on July 23, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    This was awesome!

  33. Aun Akbar on July 23, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Minecraft Earth, we found you!!!

  34. kirbyman1kanden7pf on July 23, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    that’s a hell of an improvement

  35. Yolanda R on July 23, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    I loved this makeover and the fact that the owners were so involved in the makeover. It is unbelievable that it was all done in one day!!!! Beautiful results. I loved the Japanese Red Maple in the corner. I would have liked to the the area with the corridor and see how it came out. Thanks for this video, many great ideas to implement! Greetings from Miami, FL May 2020

    Every “gahden” needs a statement

  37. Nicholas Smith on July 23, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    I’m not going to lie, that’s a spectacular intimate outdoor space. Well done.

  38. Infotainment on July 23, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Roger: These bricks aren’t mortered in, so just take em out of here! ***throws brick into wheelbarrow

    Homeowners: EZ

  39. Tatiana Pressner on July 23, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    What fabric would you recommend to use for the sitting area?

  40. SuperPussyFinger on July 23, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    This kind of job goes a lot quicker when you have a wheelbarrow guy waiting around the corner with gravel.

  41. ImmortalOreo TV on July 23, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    I find it funny how he made a video about how to plant a tree, where he talks about how you have to loosen the roots if they are circling and in this video he just said screw it and just planted the pot bound Japanese maple lol

  42. Kevin Daniel Wilson on July 23, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Oh man, I don’t know if I can take gardening advice from a guy who sounds like he works the docks in Philly

  43. FartHarder on July 23, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    This is less of a "how to" and more of a video of him barking orders at these folk

  44. Brian Fong on July 23, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    2:47 He needs to turn that stake 180 degrees to fit into the bracket.
    Now he just damaged it jamming it in the wrong way.

  45. skippymagrue on July 23, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    It’s fun to see Roger so happy and excited.

  46. llengford on July 23, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Why didn’t you guys get Home Depot to sponsor a Garden Digger and till that up

  47. Johan on July 23, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    A professional gardener spreads the roots of a plant before planting. (4:40 m.).
    2 Square meters of grass?
    A big area of black soil with a few plants…
    I’m sorry, but I think its a bad job.

  48. Veni Vidi Vici on July 23, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    4:34 😂

  49. Frank Bowne on July 23, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    That tree is toast! Surprised he didn’t say anything about it.

  50. Hector Cortez-aponte-cabrera on July 23, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Roger and Tommy, my two favorite people on the show. Smart dudes.
