Two hardworking moms battle it out for the best yard makeover. On one side is Lina McGuire, a mother of two who wants to create a relaxing sitting area for her and her husband Paul. Paul is Lina's co-captain and also her biggest concern:

He has no gardening experience. A few doors down is Karey Cottrell, a mother of three who wants to turn a section of her backyard into a fun habitat garden for her kids to learn about nature. The end result will be a garden filled with living creatures such as frogs, birds and butterflies. Which mom has the tougher challenge?

Landscape designer Marianne Simon helps both teams with their design plan.
