Blockheads Darren and Deanne earned 10/10 marks from Block judges Shaynna Blaze, Neale Whitaker and Darren Palmer when they unveiled their garden terrace.

They enlisted Block landscaper David Franklin, of Franklin Landscape & Design, to assist them with the makeover.

Franklin is a renovation reality television regular, having appeared on several seasons of The Block as well as Burke's Backyard, Australia's Best Backyards and Selling Houses Australia.

Darren and Deanne's outdoor space, adjacent to their kitchen and living room, was described as a "Tuscan retreat" by Shaynna.

The judges were particularly impressed by the mezzanine balcony the team built over their terrace. Opening from the master bedroom, the small elevated area has city views.

The terrace featured plenty of greenery, including suspended geraniums.

Despite warnings from Franklin, Deanne couldn't be dissuaded from winding fairy lights around the hangers, though the judges didn't seem to mind.

The couple, who won this week's renovation challenge, earned just shy of a perfect 30/30 score, with one point deducted for failing to use the disco-light strewn vertical planter that Chris and Jenna gave them earlier in the season.
