Handy Host Has A Gritty Green Thumb

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Next time you’re out and about, you may get ambushed by a landscape loving TV host.

Ahmed Hassan hosts Yard Crashers, a show where casual home-improvement store shoppers are ambushed by a landscaping crew, which then renovates the person’s yard in two days.

Hassan and his team tailor each backyard boost to the homeowner’s style, whether installing a Vegas-style cabana or an outhouse for a beer brewer and his buddies.

Hassan, a professional landscaper, isn’t lounging around while his crew gets down and dirty.

He says, “I’m out there on my hands and knees. It’s intense work, and perfect for my ADHD!”

Despite the miraculous makeovers, Hassan’s initial ambush is sometimes met with a strange reaction.

He says, “Surprisingly, quite a few people turn us down. Others are very eager to take us home, and that kind of scares me!”

Season two of Yard Crashers premieres April 7 on DIY Network.
