Battlefronts sees two neighbouring homes given front lawn makeovers by a team of renovators and landscapers. Each neighbour will select a garden design for the other, to be created in 8 hours on a budget of $10,000.
The local neighbourhood will decide the best design.
Following on from the success of Domestic Blitz, the Nine Network today announced production of its new lifestyle program, Battlefronts, to be hosted by Giaan Rooney.
Battlefronts takes the makeover format to a new level with each episode being a weekly war on two front lawns. Two expert teams have to compete in a one-day challenge to transform two very forgettable front yards into two fabulous ones. The gardens belong to two average Aussie families who have been neighbours for some time and live next door to each other.
Team one comprises Marc Canavan (builder), Melissa King (horticulturist) and Adam Goodchild (landscaper), while the second team is Joel Hurrey (horticulturist), Celia Pisasale (designer/gardener) and Trent Robinson (builder). As well as transforming the front yards, the two teams give viewers great information and gardening tips.
In each episode of Battlefronts two designs are created for each garden. The neighbours choose the two final designs – not for themselves but for each other – so neither neighbour knows what kind of makeover they will be getting. A coin toss determines which team makes over which yard, and each team has a budget of $10,000 to transform their yard.
What the makeover teams create in just eight hours, the average homeowner can achieve over eight days with a budget of $10,000. All of the designs are simple and can be easily followed by the home handyperson.
During the eight-hour makeover the local neighbourhood puts on its judge’s hat and votes one of the gardens the weekly winner. The owners then return home to find their front yard hidden for the big surprise.
Battlefronts is produced for the Nine Network by Endemol Southern Star.
