The Garden Rescue episode 15 2019: team are in the Bristol suburb of Bradley Stoke to come to the horticultural help of Laura and Andrew. This time the team have an unusual challenge – can they turn a long, pointed front garden into a water-saving, wildlife-friendly space that won’t have dad Andrew feeling embarrassed when he comes home from work?
Garden Rescue episode 15 2019 – Bristol Bradley Stoke
While they might not want the normal, low maintenance, simple lawn or gravel that many people have outside their front door, Andrew definitely doesn’t feel good about the tangle of weeds and overgrown wildflower meadow that has taken over the space and swallowed up the path from the street to the front door. His dream is something that won’t embarrass the neighbours! While Laura, his wife, is after water conservation and a place to encourage the bugs and creepy crawlies that young son William loves. With a budget of just £2,000, the pressure is on to come up with a design that works to their limited budget. The designers are going to have to put their thinking caps on!
So, the two design teams go head to head to wow the young Bristol couple with their plans for a head-turning front garden. The Rich brothers, Harry and David, offer a clever design of decking laid over an ornamental dry river bed leading to a central bound gravel square all surrounded by planting, shrubs and trees. Charlie Dimmock, on the other hand, pulls out all the stops, with a dramatic large bog garden and planting bed, fed by a water feature made of five watering cans that run off the rainwater drain pipe. So, who will the couple pick? And will they, after all the hard work, when they open their eyes to see their surprise new garden for the first time, be bowled over?
