Grange And Massarelli's Highlighted In First Episode Of Love Your Garden

The first episode of the new series of Love Your Garden aired last night, and Nathan James Dodd saw how a pensioner's garden in Hull regained its former pristine appearance.

Alan Titchmarsh and his team have returned to our screens another series of Love Your Garden, in which neglected outside spaces are turned into attractive and accessible gardens.

The first programme featured a 90 year old ex-land girl from Hull who could still go dancing but, after a lifetime's love of gardening, now found it physically too challenging.

Fencing, Pergola and Fountain

Tired fencing was immediately replaced by Gawsworth Panels in the front garden and Lilleshall Lattice Trellis at the rear, both manufactured by Grange Fencing and made from pressure treated timber to prevent rot.

With a robust rebated frame, the trellis is very versatile and comes in a selection of sizes from 0.3m to 1.8m high and 1.83m wide. With 20mm gaps they make a perfect screen, can be fixed to a wall to support climbers or to the top of fences.

Gawsworth Panels (3ft high and 6ft long) can be complemented by a similarly styled gate. They have an elegant domed shape with sturdy pales and, although still private, the front garden is given a more attractive open aspect.

To reflect Iris's love of ballroom dancing, a circular 'dance floor' was constructed below a Carousel Pergola also from Grange. This introduced height into the garden and could be decorated with lights or even a chandelier to add extra interest.

Because Iris is also an avid bird watcher, a Tranquillity Spill Fountain is now located in her garden.

Crafted from fine cast stone by Massarelli's in the United States, it will attract birds to drink and bathe while filling the garden with the relaxing sight and sound of flowing water.

Accessible Gardening

Accessibility was helped by constructing raised beds from railway sleepers. This is an aspect of gardening that is rapidly gaining attention through the efforts of Thrive, the Society for Horticultural Therapy.

The result is a selection of products on GardenSite that address the need for accessibility, and Forest in particular have developed several timber products in conjunction with Thrive to help gardeners who have limited mobility.

The next episode of Love Your Garden is on Tuesday 5 June at 8.00 on ITV.
