CELEBRITY GUEST

Ahmed Hassan
Celebrity Landscaper as seen on DIY Network's Yard Crashers

At the age of 10, Ahmed discovered his love of gardening and working outdoors. To many, mowing lawns, trimming shrubs and stacking wood would be considered mundane chores. Not to Ahmed. Each completed task moved him closer to his purpose in life: Teaching others the importance of hard work and how to creatively co-exist with nature. Ahmed’s love of landscaping paved the way to a successful career as one of today’s most sought after celebrity landscapers and green experts.

With his television debut in 2000, Hassan is best known as the original host of DIY Network’s “Yard Crashers.” Following a series of hosting stints for numerous DIY Network television shows including, “The Dirt On…,” “Green Me Up,” and “Blog Cabin,” the network created Yard Crashers to showcase Ahmed’s high energy, motivational spirit and love for everything green.

His rural roots, mixed with inner city upbringing, have given Ahmed a unique ability to relate to people from all walks of life.
