Today in Love Your Garden episode 8 2015, Alan Titchmarsh and the team are in Dorset creating an exciting garden for a young family. His idea for the Drakes is to give them an outdoor space that reflects terminally ill dad Andrew’s love of the great outdoors and his passion for working with wood.
He opts for a garden with a frontier-land theme that Andrew, wife Rachel and their young son Lucas can enjoy, creating a prairie-inspired back yard of big scale rustic wood structures, agricultural motifs with craftsmanship and the spirit of adventure at its core.
Love Your Garden episode 8 2015
Alan Titchmarsh travels around the country seeking out some of Britain’s loveliest domestic gardens. He will be focusing not on celebrated public gardens, but on the wonderful outdoor living spaces created by ordinary Britons.
Alan looks at how these beautiful gardens – from cottage gardens to traditional rose gardens – have been created, and helps viewers understand how they can get a similar effect in their own spaces. He is helped along the way by a team of experts who will be passing on their own particular wisdom.
Food expert Valentine Warner has tips for those who are hoping to grow their own, wildlife expert Charlotte Uhlenbroek reveals how to encourage (or discourage) insects and animals into the garden, garden designer Matt James has ideas on getting the look right and Laetitia Maklouf demonstrates how to get the most out of the tiniest of spaces, whether they be a conservatory or a single window box.
Love Your Garden is a British gardening programme that was first broadcast on ITV on 10 June 2014. The show is hosted by Alan Titchmarsh alongside co-presenters David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill and sees the team visit locations around the United Kingdom helping people to transform their gardens.
