“Your Garden Made Perfect” BB2. 8pm, 4th February
2020 proved to be a testing time with so much upheaval to life as we know it. With most of the year being spent in lockdown, I felt so very lucky to have been invited to work on a NEW Garden Design focussed TV programme. “Your Garden Made Perfect” is the sister show to Your Home Made Perfect.
There are four different Garden Designers in the show, and in each episode 2 designers visit a client. After spending time with them, we take our brief and create a unique and individual design, specifically designed to suit the family’s needs.
What really drew me to this project, was being able to demonstrate the process we go through with our clients every day. This programme really is a realistic version of events and shows you why designers do what they do! But most importantly, it talks about cost. These clients have paid for their own designs to be built. Budgets are discussed, and stuck to where possible – truthful alternatives are provided for items that blow the financial plan.
Another really exciting feature of the programme is the VR representation of the design. This actually allows the client to stand within the garden and understand the design, see what they could have in their own space. This is something many people find very difficult, and so it was exciting to see the clients reactions to seeing the designs for the first time!
