Last night Love Your Garden renovated a WW2 veteran’s garden in Eastbourne in what was a very humbling and moving episode.
Jack, who was a prisoner of war involved in the construction of the ‘Death Railway’ between Bangkok and Myanmar, had left his home aged only 15 to join the Royal Artillery. He also had a passion for art. It was his love of art which allowed Alan Titchmarsh and his team to incorporate Jack’s own artwork into thenew garden design. Since the passing of his wife, he had difficulty in maintaining his garden and accessing his art studio. Featuring not only a breakfast table, a fish pond and tropical plants, Alan and co created a new art studio for Jack to enjoy his art for many years to come.
Also making an appearance were Primrose’ very own white bamboo screening. It had been chosen to clad an area of Jack’s garden to create a tropical feel. Due to it’s ease of installation, robustness and longevity, it created a perfect disguise for Jack’s existing fence. The final results look wonderful, wouldn’t you agree?
