In the first of new series Love Your Garden, Alan Titchmarsh and the team head to Plymouth to create a show-stopping contemporary garden for 36-year-old former royal marine Mark Ormrod (pictured centre above) and his young family.
Despite losing both his legs and an arm while serving in Afghanistan after standing on an IED, Mark has made a remarkable recovery and has become an inspiration to injured veterans everywhere. Although he thinks nothing of going out of his way to
help others, his run-down and uninviting garden has remained one challenge too far.
Now he desperately needs an outdoor space where he can play safely with his children and enjoy their time together as a family. His friends and colleagues have asked Alan and the team to help. Transforming the Ormrods’ plot is a huge challenge, but Alan, Katie, Frances and David manage to create a truly spectacular contemporary garden. They show how lush tropical planting can work brilliantly in a low maintenance garden, and finish it with lots of clever ideas and features that everyone will be desperate to try at home.
Love Your Garden Episode 1 airs on Wednesday 21 June 2017 at 8.00pm on ITV.
