Foxtel is bringing Jamie Durie back to Australian screens with his  new US series Outback Nation airing next month.

Overgrown gardens, decaying decks, unkempt pools and more prevent families from enjoying their own backyards. In each one-hour episode of Outback Nation  a new family will enlist Jamie’s help to reinvent their outdoor space and turn it into the backyard paradise they have always dreamed of.

Before tackling the transformation with Jamie, each family will immerse themselves in their own “private wilderness,” camping out in their backyard and experiencing the terrain firsthand. From design mishaps to wild animal encounters, the families will be presented with many challenges on the journey to complete their backyard renovation.

Each member of the family will also be assigned their own special project to work on, while Jamie comes up with a secret design project of his own to surprise the family with.

Tapping into the trend of turning backyard spaces into outside living rooms – each family’s outdoor space will go through complete overhauls, from gutting shrubbery to pouring cement for a new patio. Along the way, viewers will learn renovation tips and design elements that could be incorporated into their own outdoor spaces.
