Love Your Garden s07e04.

The team head to Shrewsbury in Shropshire to meet Gina Constable. The former nurse's dedication to vital life-saving air ambulance services is unprecedented. For over 21 years, she has helped raise more than a quarter of a million pounds for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity - a figure which works out at over 100 life-saving air ambulance missions. To this day, despite crippling arthritis, she remains one of the service's most dedicated fundraisers. Inspired by the wishes of her late husband Tony, who was equally dedicated to fundraising for air ambulances, the team build her a breathtaking Japanese garden and share the tricks to creating a little piece of Japan at home - from transforming a run-down summerhouse into an authentic Japanese tea house, to creating cloud-pruned trees and planting Japanese maples.

Desperate Landscapes s12e02.

Jason Cameron receives a 911 call from Casey Ballman, a firefighter, and Megan Ballman, an ER nurse whose Desperate Landscape is an emergency situation. The landscape is hidden by overgrown trees that threaten the house. The chainsaws come out and the changes start. With the trees gone, Jason can start on other projects. He removes a chunk of concrete so he can create a bigger stoop. He digs a huge trench to help with drainage in the front yard. Jason also builds a huge entertainment pavilion with a sailcloth roof.
