It was a win-win scenario for two Sacramento area families, as they went “head-to-head” for an upcoming edition of the DIY network’s reality show, “Turf War.” The identities of the families and exact location were confidential, since the show will air in the spring, but the Pocket News was allowed to snap a few photos.
In the show, two neighbors compete to win $5,000 and the title of “best yard on the block” by the show’s host, Ahmed Hassan. Each team is given the same materials and time to transform their yards – and to recruit friends and family to help. Film crews were on hand to document the process, which involved a great many people.
At the end of the show, neighbors tour both yards and vote on their favorite. The winner receives the prize money – and bragging rights – but both families and the neighborhood at large win because of the beautiful yards.
