About the Show
Diarmuid Gavin is back - offering his innovative design skills to create unique, high impact gardens for the second series of the RTÉ One hit show, I Want A Garden.
Each week award-winning gardener Diarmuid Gavin comes to the aid of families looking to revamp their backyards. However, it's up to the families to do all the work if they want to create the garden of their dreams. Diarmuid's design, creative flare and advice are all free of charge. However, each participant sets the brief, puts forward all the finance and then has to don the wellies as they set about creating the garden Diarmuid has designed for them.
The budgets and scale of the garden all vary in size and shape. From a big budget Carlow creation costing in excess of ¤100,000, a classic ¤30,000 retreat in Inchicore to a ¤5,005 student getaway in Galway. In each garden Diarmuid has used his maverick approach to backyard design to help the participants transform each garden into the outdoor living space of their dreams.
