BBC Garden Rescue’s Lee Burkhill hit with ban but insists ‘I’m not going to stop’

Garden Rescue has returned for a new series and Lee Burkill and Charlie Dimmock are spending every day overhauling gardens on BBC One once again.

But Lee has opened up on a ‘ban’ from his BBC bosses – and insists he’s going to ignore it.

Today, viewers were treated to a garden rescue in Frenchay in Bristol, where a couple with a large new build garden felt their lifeless space was in need of an overhaul.

The pair, Hannah and Dominic, had just a large lawn between two plain brick walls.

Lee pitched his £6,000 budget overhaul plan with ‘bee hotels’ a key feature as he tried to marry functionality with wildlife, complete with decking and a mancave.

Chris added a firepit to his design for a stylish geometric tiled patio and a courtyard.

Unfortunately for Lee, Chris was picked by the pair, so Lee was forced to help bring Chris’ vision to life.

It comes after Friday’s episode saw a couple in Fareham pick Lee’s design for a ‘Finnish allotment garden’.

After Lee posted it to his Instagram account, viewers questioned his decision not to add a swing for the kids.

@manchesteve said: “Loved the garden but thought you might of added a swing for the boys in the undercover area.”

Lee then replied: “Hahaha I got banned from swings last year! Done too many apparently!!”

In reply to another comment, Lee continued: “I’ll be honest. Last year was rough. Was told I was too out there. Which is fine.

“But I’m not going to stop being out there. This year’s fillings been a much greater success. More ‘out there’ contribs wanting to actually garden rather than low maintenance or ‘gardens just to look at’.

The commenter then replied: “I’m pleased to hear this year has been better for you and people are beginning to understand the ‘Ninja vibe’. I find your designs a refreshing change from the norm. “

Back on today’s 3.45pm new episode, Hannah and Dominic were shown the final changed garden including a timber frame over a patio with seating area and a firepit.

Hannah told Chris: “This is exactly what we wanted. It will be really good for privacy. It’s so cosy.”
