Plot Synopsis

DESPERATE LANDSCAPES gives licensed contractor Jason Cameron one day to complete a weekend's worth of projects and transform an ugly yard into a neighborhood jewel. Of course, Jason brings a shovel and a rake -- even a backhoe sometimes -- to create a colorful and lush landscape. But he doesn't stop after planting flowers, shrubs and trees. Jason brings his power tools and paint to fix shutters, mend fences and build window boxes or trellisses. And if that's not enough, he'll even be creative with a little concrete to hide common eyesores. This series returned for its tenth season on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 10pm ET on DIY, featuring a couple who wants to bring some New Orleans style to their front yard. DIY Network broadcast the Season 11 premiere on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT. In the eleventh season opener, James and the crew head to Fort Worth, Texas to help a couple of hip, young newlyweds turn their ugly old porch into a neighborhood destination with new railings to match the house and big steps to make the porch more inviting.
On Wednesday, April 8, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, DIY Network premiered the twelfth season of DESPERATE LANDSCAPES. Season 12 opened with "America's Most Desperate Landscape 2014," as Jason Cameron and his crew comb through application after application to find the ugliest front yard in America. Their search takes them to Helotes, Texas where Jason and Connie Vela are living in a mess. Their home used to house Connie's father's construction business and the yard shows it. There is junk left behind and there is even a prototype building that has a strong resemblance to a female body part. It's one of the most unusual projects we've ever tackled. Jason takes his crew to Texas for the massive two day project that includes tearing out part of the driveway, ripping off an unusual and dangerous overhang at the front door and camouflaging the femininely-shaped building. Once the clearing is finished, Jason and his team build a beautiful fireplace and pizza oven, lay a stone walkway and build a beautiful new portico. The finishing touch for this new yard is a huge fountain surrounded by yellow roses. When the work is finished, the Velas' complaining neighbors return to celebrate another Desperate Landscapes success
