Garden Rescue TV Show Transformation Is Being Called The 'Worst Ever' By Shocked Viewers

Viewers of BBC's Garden Rescue were left fizzing by its latest transformation, branded the 'worst ever' online.

The concept behind Garden Rescue is simple: alongside award-winning designers the Rich Brothers, Charlie Dimmock works to create fabulous gardens for homeowners all around the UK. Think Grand Designs, or DIY SOS, but on a smaller scale.

Last night, February 22, the team took on the garden of Karen and her husband Colin, from Romsey. The result left viewers gobsmacked for all the wrong reasons.

Before getting to work on the £6,000 makeover, Karen said, 'Maybe an Italian feel as we love Italy... perhaps a pergola, some grape vines, something like that.'

Karen, who works as a reverend for hospital patients towards the end of their lives, simply wanted a 'garden that she can unwind in and relax', especially considering her job can be rather 'challenging'.

Armed with thousands of pounds, they set out on creating the couple's little slice of Italy in their back garden, putting in a pergola, a water feature made out of terracotta and an olive tree, costing a whopping £500. Dimmock was also seen hauling boulders into the garden, which also cost more than £500.

When Karen and Colin finally saw their new garden, their jaws dropped. They even described it as 'wonderful'. However, despite the couple seeming to like what they were given, the completed garden was compared to a 'building site' by particularly critical viewers.

'Anyone seen #gardenrescue? I’d be like f*ck if I came home and some asshole had done that to my garden! And it only cost £6,000 I honestly can’t believe it,' one user wrote. 'That's a nightmare garden #gardenrescue - too much going on and too much growing out of the gravel. Two years from now it will be a right mess and the gravel will be full of cat sh*t,' another complained.

'I like parts of it but it looks unfinished,' a third wrote, to which another responded, 'I said exactly the same. I know for 6k I was expecting a lot more.' Another viewer described it as 'the worst #gardenrescue I’ve seen'.

'I really wish I could get my garden made more accessible to me as a wheelchair user/disabled person more than just a patio area,' another wrote.

Garden Rescue has faced criticism before, with viewers describing the team's past transformations as 'shockingly bad' off of large budgets.
