Redwood Stone – renowned creators of Gothic follies and ruins – will be the main focus in a forthcoming edition of ITV1’s popular Love Your Garden programme. Presented by Alan Titchmarsh, the programme shows the transformation of a typical garden on a housing estate near Grantham, Lincolnshire into a unique living space with not one, but two of Redwood Stone’s Gothic follies.
Commenting on the programme, which will feature at 8pm on Tuesday 3 September, Tim Redwood of Redwood Stone says:
“To feature so prominently on one of TV’s flagship gardening programmes really is the icing on the cake in our Golden Jubilee year. We were on site throughout the filming period to provide expertise and tips on how to achieve the authentic folly look and are delighted with the outcome. Everyone at Redwood Stone will be glued to the TV when the programme is shown!”
Gothic follies to Roman Pools and Spas
Founded in 1969, Redwood Stone is a successful third generation family business based near the Cathedral City of Wells in Somerset. In 2019 the company celebrates its golden jubilee. One of the company’s most important milestones came in 2001 when it created its first Gothic Folly, thereby becoming the first folly specialist for over a century. Bringing the genre into the 21st century, Redwood Stone has designed and built more practical structures including potting sheds, garden rooms, outdoor kitchens, tennis pavilions, pool houses, and even a working Roman Bath and Spa! Redwood Stone exports worldwide.
Love Your Garden
In each Love Your Garden programme, Alan Titchmarsh and his team of experts transform barren plots and small neglected grounds into stunning gardens and lifestyle-enhancing outdoor living spaces – while informing and inspiring viewers on how to recreate the look themselves. In each episode, Alan surprises garden owners who have an inspiring story to tell and whose outdoor space is in desperate need of a transformation. While the owner is whisked away, Alan designs the new-look garden – taking inspiration from the best gardens in the area and asking for help from local people and the owner’s friends in completing the project.
