In Turf War Holiday 2011, expert host and licensed landscape contractor Ahmed Hassan unleashes the ultimate Christmas-inspired makeover competition, with the battleground including both the back and front yards. Out back, two uninspired, barren backyards are transformed into two fantastic, contemporary outdoor living spaces. Tom and Christie Lynn's very small concrete pad is extended with a freshly poured brick stamped patio to accommodate a new stone outdoor kitchen. Plus, cobble seat walls are constructed out of prefabricated mesh frames. Neighbor John Kluenker overlays existing concrete with a natural sandstone flagstone and creates shade sections using recycled copper panels. Then, a concrete mortar mix is blown into a hose to make a rustic stone seat wall. In the front yards, it's a real-life Santa's workshop! The Lynns design a holiday-themed snow park with wrapped gifts, mechanical helpers and a holiday tree formed with rebar and fabric. Over at the Kluenker house, they construct a rustic plane out of metal and fire-resistant fabric, along with an enchanted forest made from old tree branches and paint.

A house on Waller Lane in Colleyville, Texas, is viewed hesitantly by all of the house movers because the property is heavily forested making it an expensive if not impossible move. Donna has a crafty plan to pull the house out through the backyard to the street behind, but she plays along like she doesn't want the house to try to keep the price low. Her plan works and she and Toni score the sweet little house for cheap. She and Toni have grand plans for the renovation, including a woman cave and Southwest decor, but will the high cost put a serious dent in their potential profit? Another house on Callender Road in Mansfield, Texas, looks promising from what little the movers can see through the kitchen door. It's clear from the exterior that at least one wall is buckling and the house could have serious structural issues. Cody is undeterred and wins the house. It's a nail biter of a move as Cody must shore-up the structure before it can be lifted. Suzi has issues with the house because of the odd layout and is shocked to find out the front entrance leads right into the bedrooms. Cody literally flips the house by turning it around and creates a new front entrance out of what was originally the kitchen door. To top it off, they make a home office out of the old entry.

Up for auction: a charming historic home on Main Street in Haslet, Texas, which was the area telephone operator's original headquarters. The Snow Sisters think it is adorable even though it is a 'T' shape, which means a more complicated moving process. They make no secret of their excitement about the house, as they feel Gary and Daddy can handle the move. Randy is lukewarm about it, but is interested only if the price is right. The Slays are divided: Suzi loves the house, but Cody is adamant that it would be too complicated to move. They eventually decide to pass. During the auction, it looks like Donna has it all but won when the high price forces Randy to drop out, but Suzi jumps in at the last second and the price continues to climb. Cody does everything he can to stop Suzi from bidding, and their argument leaves an opening for Donna Snow to jump in and win the auction. The Snows' plan is to cut the house in half and move it in two pieces, then decorate the house with a nod to the original style. In Weatherford, Texas, an attractive ranch is up for auction that appeals to all of the movers, but especially Randy. As the price climbs the Snows drop out, followed by the Slays. It finally gets too rich for Randy's blood and he drops out, leaving the win to an architectural salvage company owner. Randy ends up empty-handed and sour about losing the house to an outsider.

Cody and Suzi Slay win a house that has great potential, but the post-auction tour reveals the house was in the middle of being renovated. The Slays are excited by the potential return on investment, despite a weird layout that has no usable closets but does have a large open space in the middle of the house. Suzi decides to have Cody build a luxury walk-in closet modeled after her closet at home. All of the house movers know that a certain home in Forth Worth has been vacant for ages, which usually means the interior is trashed. The Snow sisters win the house at auction, and are elated to find that the interior is in fantastic condition. This means they can make a big profit on a quick and easy flip.
