Twenty years ago, Laurence Fishburne met Greg in the West Village of New York City and the two instantly clicked. Soon after, Greg quickly became Laurence’s right-hand man. Greg has helped Laurence manage his personal and professional life for the past 15 years. Now, Laurence wants to turn the tables and help Greg out. On this week’s Laurence Fishburne Celebrity IOU episode, we got to see one of the most epic backyard reveals yet.

Greg and his partner Jill love their home, and have put a ton of work into renovating it. The inside looks spectacular. And though they improved their backyard a ton, they still had a long way to go when it came to getting everything they wanted. Laurence wanted to surprise them with a gorgeous backyard that functions for everyone in the family and also looks fabulous, so they can invite friends over for pool days, delicious meals, and chilling in a space as beautiful as the rest of their home.

Ready to Dine

Greg and Jill’s outdoor dining area got a serious upgrade! Before, there was just a place to sit and eat together. But Laurence and the Bros gave it the 5-star treatment.

They refinished the patio with modern decking and implemented a stair to minimize the trip hazard. Then, they designed an outdoor kitchen, complete with a grill and two fridges. They also installed two retractable fabric awnings to keep the space cozy and shaded in the hot summer months.

A Cozy Firepit View

Laurence, Drew, and Jonathan wanted to make the backyard the ultimate pool party destination for Greg, Jill, and their friends. Keeping with the tranquil vibe of the space, they decided to include a modern firepit and lounge area just across the pool.

The same decking was used here to match the decking in the dining area for a streamlined look. Along the walls behind the sofa, modern plants and greenery make the space pop.

Multiple Places to Relax & Unwind

This poolside oasis featured everything Greg and Jill needed to take their hosting to the next level. A stunning outdoor kitchen and dining area, high-top bar tables, a lounge area complete with a cozy fire pit, and chaises around the pool made for a picturesque new outdoor living space.

Greg and Jill were totally blown away by this surprise renovation! When they finally got a look at their completed backyard, Greg said, “I just feel loved, you know? I feel loved by Laurence, and I can tell that he made decisions that were all right on the money.”
