There'll be no mildew on The Block this season, at least not where judges are concerned.

Home and Garden editor Shelley Ferguson and architect Mark Gascoigne will join hosts Mark Richardson and Shannon Ryan to keep things fresh on the hit renovation show's third season.

Ferguson has first-hand DIY experience, giving her insight into the challenges that loom ahead for the teams.

"I'm addicted to décor, design and renovating, so judging The Block NZ 2014 is an absolute privilege", Ferguson said. "The Block NZ is such a great showcase of creativity and Kiwi ingenuity - I can't wait to see what this season's teams have in store."

Architect Gascoigne has worked on the design of over 2000 projects in New Zealand and abroad, in a career spanning nearly 30 years.

He expects the teams to take account of all the needs and aspirations of a future buyer.

"I would like to see exceptional ideas that not only take into account the uses of each space but also show some real personality and a distinctive style," he said.  

"I love design challenges and hope I can also challenge this year's teams to produce the best work ever seen on The Block NZ."

More than 70 per cent of the New Zealand population tuned into the last series of The Block New Zealand.

Over a million Kiwis tuned in during the show's two-hour finale last year, which was won by Alice and Caleb Pearson.
