Charlie Dimmock returned to our screens last week with Garden Rescue and Nathan James Dodd has been catching up on what has been happening in this latest garden transformation programme.
The first of four shows featuring the 'Shed Of The Year' competition was aired on Sunday 21 June and as expected Nathan James Dodd saw several remarkable structures.
Once again part of George Clarke's 'Amazing Spaces' series, this year's competition has attracted a record 2520 entries. During the first episode, we got to see sheds in the 'Normal' and 'Eco' categories.
The first 'normal' shed contained a huge model railway that had taken twenty years to construct, the grandchildren for whom it was intended were now grown men.
A retractable roof on another revealed a top of the range telescope that could view the Buckinghamshire sky at night, it was built by someone with no DIY or building experience.
Next up was a home cinema full of memorabilia, while the last nomination was built by a lover of both sheds and boats, who had combined his two interests into one that could be piloted along the river.
Environmentally friendly sheds also came in many guises. A highland bothy, the majority of which was built from materials within 150 yards of its forest location, and another constructed from compressed and shaped mud.
Finally, a two storey geodesic dome was solar powered, and surrounded by a moat that reflected light into the interior, was up against one that paid homage to the owl with two huge glass eyes and constructed from recycled materials.
The winners of the two categories were the Owl House and 'Maid of Dekkin', the punningly named shedboat, and they go through to the grand final.
Next week, Unique and Historic sheds are judged, and we'll see entries such as a Japanese treehouse, a gothic folly, and others inspired by two contrasting periods, the 1950s and Anglo-Saxon England.
If you need a shed, but are not quite sure about these quirky constructions, look through GardenSite for an impressive variety of practical and simple to assemble timber, metal and plastic sheds from well known manufacturers.
With only a few months' training under her belt, GardenSite's own Flori Bosnigeanu took part in this year's Great Birmingham Run, raising over £500 for the city's Children's Hospital.
