America's Most Desperate Landscape

DIY Network's Jason Cameron searches the country to find America's Most Desperate Landscape. The annual search takes Jason and his crew to Escondido, California where the Ruffins' neighbors are begging Jason to fix the neighborhood eyesore. It will take a crane, some huge boulders, a steel pergola and a custom-built bench, deck and fountain to transform this ugly yard from worst in America to one of the best.

Searching for America's Most Desperate Landscape 2014

Jason Cameron searches for America's Most Desperate Landscape 2014, and after combing through hundreds of pictures and videos he and the Desperate Landscapes crew settle on one incredibly ugly landscape in Helotes, Texas just outside of San Antonio. Jason brings his crew and supplies to Connie and Jason Vela's home to fix up their horrible landscape, but this time there's a cool twist. Web users on diynetwork.com cast their votes on what should be included in the Vela's new landscape. From the fountain to the front door, America has spoken and the Vela's are getting a dream landscape with the voters' seal of approval.

America's Most Desperate Landscape 2015

Jason Cameron received hundreds of entries for America's Most Desperate Landscape, and he found the ugliest yard in the country belongs to a pair of hard-working teachers in Escondido, California. The yard features a huge buoy, yards of concrete, and loads of dead trees. It's a huge source of embarrassment for Nicole Hoofard, a landscaping and agriculture teacher, and her husband Aaron, a high school baseball coach, but with help from Jason and the diynetwork.com online voters, they will fix the yard in two days. Voters helped choose landscape design, stone finishes and more. Jason incorporated it all into a yard with a baseball play area for the kids, a relaxing patio area for the parents and a lush tropical fountain to welcome family and friends.
