‘Curb Appeal Xtreme’s’ filming locations explored
Curb Appeal Xtreme is a home renovation with a twist. Instead of renovating homes on the inside, the show focuses on the exteriors, or as they like to call it, “curb appeal.”
Season 1 of the show has three hosts: John Gidding, Jamie Durie and Rachel Taylor. They’ve all worked under the immense pressure of weather and deadlines to create breathtaking backyards for homes.
From Rachel’s Instagram, we know that a part of the show has been filmed in Nashville, Tennesee. Taking to her Instagram on June 10, she posted a picture of the trio with the caption: “As for @nashvilletn, it is a lush, green oasis of art, music, food and nature with good people and hard-working tradespeople, artisans, and communities…we’ve been so lucky to call this place home for now…and maybe even longer.”
The hosts have posted several BTS snaps from Curb Appeal Xtreme’s shooting location.
In another snap on August 17, Rachel, posing alongside her co-star, John, revealed that the filming also took place in Los Angeles, California.

A look at the show’s cast
Ardent HGTV fans might remember that John was the host of the OG show Curb Appeal. The Istanbul native has attended Yale University, where he acquired a Bachelor of Arts degree in architecture. He has assisted in designing the Brooklyn Bridge Park, Union Square in New York and Carnegie Mellon University’s campus.
Jamie, on the other hand, is a popular face on HGTV. He has hosted shows like Backyard Takeover, House Rules, Backyard Blitz and more. Jamie is also the founder and director of the international design firm Durie Design, which he established in 1998.
Taylor, who will handle the carpentry on the show, previously worked as a consultant and a professional banana bread-maker. However, the self-taught carpenter decided to pursue her passion for woodwork and opened her own carpentry business in Los Angeles, California.
How many episodes does season 1 have?
Rachel has revealed in her Instagram stories that season 1 of Curb Appeal Xtreme will have six episodes.
The show’s official synopsis reads: “Designer John Gidding, Horticulturalist Jamie Durie and Carpenter Rachel Taylor join forces to dramatically overhaul the front and backyards of homes.”
