Dream Gardens episode 1 2022: Two years ago (episode here), a couple had their son and daughter-in-law transform their bland backyard into a striking, sculptural retreat. Michael McCoy returns to see if the unique garden was worth the gamble.
Dream Gardens is an Australian lifestyle series written for television, and hosted by botanist, leading landscape designer and author Michael McCoy. The series consists of eight episodes in which McCoy follows and assists with the transformation of a garden and the people behind the project. The show takes the viewers all over Australia to showcase some of the country’s most lavish and beautiful gardens as they are being designed and created. Each episode of Dream Gardens follows a different family in a different part of Australia as they go through the process of designing their dream garden, which often involves varying design visions, budget issues and weather problems.

Join leading landscape designer Michael McCoy as he showcases some of Australia’s most lavish and magnificent gardens from the first spade hitting the ground to the incredible end result.

McCoy has a degree in botany, long experience as a hands-on gardener and sought-after garden designer, and a passionate curiosity about what makes good garden design work. He’s empathetic, enthusiastic and opinionated – the perfect guide to lead viewers around eight gardens-in-the-making.
