Dream Gardens ep.1

This new Australian series begins with a rural Queensland couple's journey to transform a rock hard paddock into an ambitious and extensive kitchen garden so that they can live out their "grow it, eat it, live it" dream.


 Join leading landscape designer Michael McCoy as he showcases some of Australia’s most lavish and magnificent gardens from the first spade hitting the ground to the incredible end result.
 What does it mean to make a garden? What longings do gardens fulfil; what dreams do they satisfy? These are the question at the heart of a new show, Dream Gardens, launching on ABC TV this week. Eschewing how-to tips on growing plants (done so well by ABC's other garden offering, Gardening Australia), this is a show that looks instead at what we want from gardens and how clever garden design can deliver it.
 The host is the ebullient Michael McCoy, a garden designer and writer. McCoy has a degree in botany, long experience as a hands-on gardener and sought-after garden designer, and a passionate curiosity about what makes good garden design work. He's empathetic, enthusiastic and opinionated - the perfect guide to lead viewers around eight gardens-in-the-making.
