DIY Network's Desperate Landscapes sets out to help Mary Rake, a single mom juggling three active kids — J.J., Peter and Katie — and a career as a children's author. Mary's neighbors say she is a deserving neighbor who spends so much time working and taking care of the kids that she's neglected the front yard of her attractive Tudor home. They'd love to see lots of color and a more welcoming landscape next door. That's where landscaping pro Jason Cameron comes in — with the backhoe, the jigsaw, some big plants and buckets of paint — to turn a tired Tudor into a storybook house.
