Ahmed Hassan is one of the Bay Area's most sought-after young landscape designers, and not just because he is a local area native. With over 20 years experience in the field of landscaping and home improvement, Hassan is a licensed landscape contractor and certified landscape technician who believes that a great home starts with a solid landscape. He holds a certificate in ornamental horticulture and maintains a qualified applicators certification for pest control.

He runs his own landscape consulting, installation, maintenance and irrigation business.
On screen, Ahmed shares his valuable expertise as host on three DIY Network series: Yard Crashers, Blog Cabin, and the newly developed Turf War. Off screen, Ahmed runs Ahmed Hassan Landscaping Services, a complete landscape design and installation company offering seasonal maintenance, improvements and garden consultation services. He is also a frequent guest contributor on the CBS Early Show.
As a young boy, Ahmed lived in rural areas of California, working alongside his father and other role models who used their hands to earn their living. He entered the world of gardening at the age of 15, primarily focusing on landscaping maintenance. In 1992, Ahmed started his first gardening and maintenance business, Hassan Gardening and he currently resides in Northern California with his wife and three children.
Hassan will be appearing in seminars at the Fall South Bay Home & Garden Show on Saturday, September 11th and Sunday, September 12th, offering advice and ideas for their outdoor living space and signing autographs for attendees.
Anthony Gilardi, resident carpentry expert on HGTV's Myles of Style, will also be on hand to give valuable demonstrations of the carpentry skills that he has honed over the years. Whether it's sanding, staining or constructing a new project, Anthony can impart his knowledge and experience to curious attendees.
There will also be appearances by contracting guru Steven Katkowsky, author of "Danger, Construction Zone: Your guided tour to a successful remodeling project". Katkowsky will give guests tips on choosing the right contractor, as well as showcasing several seminars which teaches consumers how to add up to three times the storage space in a 5 x 8 bathroom and create the illusion of size.
Friends of San Martin Animal Shelter (FOSMAS) will be returning to the show to once again host their popular mobile adoption center.
