When can people expect to see the next season of #YardCrashers?
The series has been on since 2008, and remains one of the first and most popular yard renovation television series. There is a whole franchise of Crashers shows, which shows just how popular the concept is. The series is now in its 16th season and has an astounding 8 out of 10 stars on IMDb.com. That being said, it’s safe to say there will be a 17th season, likely in the fall.
How are people reacting to the show?
The concept of the show is fun for many viewers because the host goes into a home improvement shop and finds an unwilling suspect who is in need of a yard redesign. Critics of the show have wondered how much of the series is scripted or planned ahead of time, because some of the things that happen seem like it wouldn’t happen without preplanning. Some people also wonder if the work that is done is actually quality in the amount of time it takes them, and how much of it is lasting. People also want to know how much it is maintained after the completion of the series, because people who let their yards get that bad in the first place might not be too keen on keeping it looking good. The popularity of the Crashers franchise has grown to include a huge audience and fan base that is unrivalled by any other home improvement franchise.
What are some of the projects they’ve completed during the current season?
So far during the season, a pink patio seriously lacking entertainment space is fixed up to create a luxurious space. One rustic farm’s owners are trying to come up with a way to coexist in their yard. Another patio is in need of some cover to help protect it from the harsh sun. An overgrown yard is turned into a putting green with a nice redwood deck. A couple who is particularly fond of wine enjoy their new bar made out of wine barrels.
