    Not at all inspiring but could improve.  Too repetitive.  The garden looked better before it was tackled.  Whatever happened to all the healthy plants they took out which were disguising the grotty fencing?  I will give it a second chance but if it does not improve I will then forget it.

    Instant garden?

    We're just into the 24th year and haven't done it yet.

    If I could bring myself to watch, would it help? image

    We know this kind of thing always goes to sh*t,  especially if they are novice

    It was by- the- book standard design principles. Not very inspiring but certainly something that people could easily copy. And cheap as chips. A few bags of gravel, 4 I think bits of trellis and some plants. Didn't catch if they said a budget at the start or not. Having said that, the garden was more like a pond than a garden. I have never seen such a water logged site as that!
