Advantages: good plant advice, soil advice, building and carpentry help and advice, inspirational.....alan & tommy
Disadvantages: i can't think of any!
This is one program i really like to watch and do so nearly every time it is on tv.
The four of them get on so well it's great (alan, tommy, will and last but certainly not least charlie), all four work really hard in the couple of days they have to turn gardens from nothing but weeds and rubbish and ones the the people have started to make nice but need a extra little bit of help to get it finished, to a beautiful paradise with bedding plants trees and shrubs, with flowers that leave a sweet scent all around you, and building and carpentry work done by Tommy walsh. Who in my books is so good at what he does, the way he can get flagging level first time without even using a spirit level, now that to me he is well and truly talented man.
Plus they all have their own reasons for merits, to start with Alan, he does design some really good gardens, while others are a little bad but that's my taste in what i like everyones views will be different to mine. Some of the good designs he does/makes for some peoples gardens is magical, Tommy can turn nothing into something shocking and amazing. Will does his fair share of hard work also building and Charlie does some good water features and works hard carrying more bricks and slabs than i probably could! She got a good taste in the best plants for different gardens and so she should, she used to work in a garden centre.
I have seen most of the groundforces, unfortunately not all of them. I think like everything some of them leave you feeling disappointed but everyone seems to like their gardens, anything is better than what was there before. Not everyone needs a garden team to come and do it for them, my mum was so inspired by them that she got stuck into the patch of weeds and plastic swing in her back garden and now it is something even Alan Titchmarsh would be proud of. An amazing inspiration to a lot of people.
I tell you what i would really love for them to come and do my
garden, for my baby. Just having them at my home would make my day, week and year.
