But in that time he has recognised that for many people, a stand-alone garden is not enough. They dream of a stunning outdoor space, that works hand in hand with their home.

Episode 3
 
For decades, Alan Titchmarsh has tackled some of the toughest backyards in the country to help people achieve their dream of a perfect garden. But in that time he has recognised that for many people, a stand-alone garden is not enough.  
 
For the first time, Alan and his expert team create brand new indoor spaces to compliment the amazing gardens they have always designed for truly inspirational people.  Top architects, builders and gardeners turn run-of-the-mill homes into jaw-dropping places to live, where the theme of the outdoors is brought right though to the inside, connecting the spaces seamlessly together.
 
In episode three, Alan travels to Chester to meet Ann and Richard Price who have devoted their lives to helping others.  Richard has been a Samaritan volunteer for over 40 years, Ann trains guide dogs for the blind and together they have fostered nearly twenty children.
 
Their home and garden have taken a back seat.  Instead of a relaxing sanctuary at the end of a tiring day, the ground floor resembles a corridor of rooms with no connection to the garden.  In addition, Alan believes the garden to be one of the ugliest he has ever seen.  A giant patio dominates the space, having been built to accommodate the puppies Ann trains.  
 
Alan and his team get to work on the outdoor space whilst Alan enlists the help of award winning project designer James Stroud to get cracking with the interior. James specializes in designing interiors that work in harmony with the garden and his first move is to demolish the existing conservatory and utility room, to completely reconfigure the ground floor and create a calming open plan space in neutral colours.  
 
Meanwhile Katie Rushworth creates a country garden of wild flowers and a new vegetable garden and play area for Ann and Richard’s beloved granddaughter Jessica to enjoy.
