HGTV’s ‘Flip Or Flop’ Will Showcase Spectacular Backyard Transformations


This summer, HGTV will premiere five new episodes of its popular series Flip or Flop that showcase beautiful backyard transformations and outdoor living spaces.  Beginning with the episode on Thursday, August 25, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the outdoor-themed shows will feature Tarek and Christina El Moussa as they complete the home renovations that Flip or Flop fans love, while also highlighting stunning swimming pools, cozy patios and chic water features. The special episodes will premiere through Thursday, September 22.

“It’s the season for outdoor living, so we’re showcasing the outdoor transformations of five properties,” said Tarek. “The results are astonishing—we create great-looking backyards and increase property value.”

HGTV’s Flip or Flop special summer episodes include:

Beachside Beauty

Premieres Thursday, August 25, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

Tarek and Christina buy a small home near the beach with a backyard that lacks space and function. The duo remodels the home and maximizes every inch of the yard to create a special outdoor retreat for potential buyers.

Split Level Falls

Premieres Thursday, September 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

The El Moussas buy a split-level house in dire need of a whole-home renovation. Since space is scarce, they create an indoor/outdoor living area that highlights a chic water feature and stylish sitting area.

Backyard Staycation

Premieres Thursday, September 8, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

This is the El Moussas’ biggest backyard transformation to date. The couple converts the large outdoor space to create the feel of a five-star resort. Features include an elegant fire pit and a full-service bar with outdoor living and dining areas.

Pooling Value

Premieres Thursday, September 15, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

Tarek and Christina buy a large home with an outdoor space perfect for a new pool. They create the ultimate entertaining paradise by adding a sunken lounge, hot tub and dinosaur sculpture that delights the kids.

Poolside Potential

Premieres Thursday, September 22, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

The backyard of this 2,700 square-foot home tempts the El Moussas to expand their investment budget to the max. They install a stunning backyard spa that features a pergola, fire pit and pool. It’s a risky move to spend the extra money, but Tarek and Christina are confident they’ll find a buyer thanks to the high-end backyard renovation.
