Garden Rescue episode 22 2020 – Rugby: Esme and Richard live in Rugby with seven pets. They want an English country garden with interest for the animals and an outdoor cinema for them.
Esme and Richard live in Rugby. She is a vet, so they share their first marital home with seven pets! The garden is currently a new build blank canvas, with just turf and a small shed, but the couple want to turn it into a pet-friendly paradise that mixes an English cottage garden style with lots of interest for the animals and an outdoor cinema for Esme, Richard and their friends and family. Arit Anderson and Charlie Dimmock have a £3,000 budget to make the couple’s dream come true.

Dimmock first came to the public’s attention in 1997, when she joined the BBC gardening series Ground Force, five years after first meeting the producer/director of the series when she built a pond for the Meridian series, Grass Roots. Dimmock co-presented Ground Force for the eight years it aired. She became known for appearing braless on shows. Calendars featuring her likeness outsold lingerie model Caprice Bourret, and fans nicknamed her horticultural Viagra.
Since then, she has presented such programmes as The Joy of Gardening and Charlie’s Garden Army, as well as presenting coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show. In 2004, she appeared in the Channel 4 reality TV show, The Games. She has also appeared on American television, presenting a gardening slot on The Early Show on CBS. In September 2006, she appeared on the BBC’s Celebrity MasterChef.
During the mid-2000s, after Ground Force had ceased production, she presented a local ITV Meridian series entitled River Walks, in which she walked along various rivers in Southern England, visiting landmarks and attractions along the way as well as meeting people who live and work on the rivers.
Since founding their garden design company Rich Landscapes in 2013 and becoming the youngest team to win gold at the RHS Chelsea Flower show in 2015, the pair have become known for their clean, modern lines, naturalistic planting and cheery, down-to-earth disposition. All of which has brought them projects with fashion houses Chanel and Massimo Dutti, Hampshire hotel Heckfield Place and residential enthusiasts across Europe – as well as a book deal and several television spots on the BBC.
