Joe and Amy Vance are in law enforcement by day and in their spare time, they are bodybuilders. They boast that they are great at growing muscles and not-so-great at growing plants. They've called muscleman Jason Cameron for some help to restore Amy's grandparents' home to its former glory. Jason busts up part of the massive driveway to create a new paver patio with a circular patio kit. The patio gets some screening from a curved cedar fence and some plantings. In between their hard work in the landscape, Jason and the homeowners flex their muscles and show off their hard work in the gym, and at the end of the day, they're ready to show off the landscape to the neighbors.

Jes Mayer and her two sons saved up for months to buy an old home in Cincinnati. The house has a huge yard for Jes's sons to play in, but with a big yard came more work than Jes could handle. Jason's plan to breathe new life into this old beauty is to create a beautiful landscape. The plan calls for tons of crushed stone to create a Victorian circle driveway as well as a new patio. Stone stairs will be added leading to an arbor to the left of the front door, and the home's old front door gets a facelift to create a landscape that fits with the house and the whole neighborhood.
