Photo Gallery: Peter Fallico’s Backyard
HGTV host Peter Fallico envisioned his 20-by-50 foot backyard as an extension of his kitchen and an entertaining-friendly outdoor space. With the help of Toronto’s Fossil Landscapes, he transformed his urban yard into a contemporary open-air party room. A cedar patio deck with a horizontal fence invites guests to linger over drinks, while a lower stone terrace provides a more formal dining area, leading to a garden path beyond.
This outdoor makeover creates a sophisticated space for barbecues and cocktail parties.
Peter’s backyard design is comprised of two distinct entertaining zones: a tiered cedar deck outfitted with a bar-lounge and a ground-level dining area on an interlocking stone terrace. The planter closest to the house can be filled with ice and used to chill drinks.

With its Tuscan countryside look, the dining area almost belies its urban surroundings. Trees lining the space offer privacy and create an intimate setting. A firebowl in the foreground takes off the night chill on the cedar deck.

The interlocking tumbled-concrete path is lined with boxwood hedging and vibrant annuals, backed by a row of aromatic cedars.
