GRAHAM – THE BATH HOUSE GARDEN
Planting a garden that looks beautiful during all four seasons of the year is probably the most difficult gardening assignment, but that’s exactly what The Bath House Garden does. Set on four acres of sprawling estate, this garden features the flavours of France, England and Italy all creating charming spaces different from one another.
As Graham chats to the owners, he discovers no job was too big or too small for them, doing all the brick work and stonework themselves and even using their own self-taught design flare. So, take a look around and be charmed by this rustic country estate.
CHARLIE – EVOLVING BACKYARD: STAGE TWO

After this second week of upgrades, there are two distinct areas of the garden. Just how far can it evolve?

While re-painting makes a difference, upcycling an old sideboard will provide much needed storage and a touch of glamour. This new entryway will make you feel proud whether you’re coming or going.
