This DIY show, hosted by Jason Cameron (a licensed contractor), is focused on helping the viewer learn how to tackle problem or troubled landscapes and transform them into appealing, eye-catching venues. The show covers everything a home or property owner might want to know about basic landscaping and fixing problem lawns, driveways, backyards, approaches and more. Each show typically entails a particular project from start to finish and also includes additional tips and hints, use of tools and types of materials needed all related to the current project being highlighted. Some example topics include, "How to Build a Gate", "How to Create Planter Boxes", "How to Repair Concrete Steps". At the beginning of each show the viewer is introduced to a real family or property owner that has a problem yard, lawn or other issues related to landscaping and Cameron then steps they and the viewer through what needs to be done to fix or improve the problems or problem area. Often times, the yards or landscapes highlighted are in such bad shape that interviews with neighbors or surrounding business owners are featured with their complaints about the offending property. In addition, the show regularly features guest contractors and experts in fields related to the project at hand as well as advice on how and where to shop for needed tools and materials. Overall, Desperate Landscapes is a genuine blend of reality television mixed and sound, practical advice on how the viewer can tackle everyday problems with their own yards, drives and patios. The show is produced and directed by Jay Shatz and was developed in conjunction with the show's host, Cameron, who has a longtail history in professional contract work as well as similar television appearances as a guest host or expert.
