The premise is that a couple of landscape designers knock on the door telling the unsuspecting/surprised homeowners their landscaping is busted, . . . but we are going to fix it in 2 days. This morning the show centered on the homeowners son. He had dug up the front yard over several months attempting to install a putting green . . . never finishing. There were piles of dirt, weeds, and dead grass covering the entire front yard . . . it had apparently been that way for several months, absolutely hideous.
So the Garden Police (along with homeowners, and said son) go about renovating the yard. In another of those cutesy type renovations: impractical, knick-knacky, maintenance nightmare jobs. Aaaaarghh!!!
I was actually asked by my wife to not watch these shows because the threat of where they send my blood pressure. This one about did me in. If they would spend some time on practical information, solid design principles (beyond, oh a nice picket fence here!), and less knick-knacky junk they might have something.
It might also help if the design looked like something beyond what a 3rd grader would draw-it is TV after all . . . shouldn’t we be educating besides entertaining . . . . if this is entertainment give me boredom.
Also why do they show before and after in a Sesame Street style of delivery? Do the producers think we are 3rd graders??? Discovery Home Channel . . . . you’re busted . . . .
