The difference with this show is  the homeowners do not go away and come back for the big reveal but have to do the hard work themselves before revealing to their family the new garden.

The homeowners will not only help create their own garden learning along the way, as well as how to look after the garden in the future, so it will never again become a Filthy Garden!
