Advantages: good ideas, beautiful gardens
Disadvantages: They haven't been to my garden yet!
I have recently taken up a love for gardening and so I have been sitting in front of the tv watching the re-runs of Ground force on UKTV gardens!
I have to say they have given me a lot of inspiration, however I just know that my project will not end up looking anything like theirs does!
The programme is a reality tv show where a team of professional gardeners travel around the country fixing up peoples gardens as a surprise and making their little bit of outdoor space much more spectacular. It has to be said though, that sometimes, even though the finished result is extremely beautiful and a little bit different it is not always the most practical solution for that household.
The programme lasts for around 30 minutes and most of that is footage of the two days where the team of gardeners are at work. They give you handy hints of how to reproduce something similar in your own garden, as well as prices of how much you can expect to pay for the materials - however be aware that if you are watching a re-run there is a good chance that the prices may have changed.
Summary: Good gardening program with some different ideas.
