Charlie Dimmock and the Rich Brothers are in Bedford, competing to design a garden for busy single mum Sam and her six-year-old daughter Amy. The garden is overgrown, unloved and badly in need of some TLC. Sam dreams of a trampoline for Amy, a seating area for herself and a colour-filled oasis bursting with oriental style plants.
However, money is tight, and with a budget of just £1,300 the designers have to pull some tricks out of the bag to make the most of what is there already. They have tips on rejuvenating huge overgrown shrubs, a cost-effective way of replacing a tumble-down boundary fence and ideas for breathing new life into an old slippery deck.
