Catrina and Randy DeMartini are newly married. While the relationship is still in the honeymoon phase, they're ready to take their house to divorce court. Randy is an Elvis enthusiast who is determined to bring a bit of The King into the new landscape, while Catrina is doing everything in her power to convince her designers to let The King rest in peace.
There is currently no landscaping and the house is all one color with no depth. Designers Yvonne Lane and Brad Frazier have their work cut out for them since the budget is only $5,000.
