It’s long been thought that established gardens need less work than a blank canvas when it comes to design – not true. Sometimes it can be more difficult deciding what works and what doesn’t, and learning to let go, rather than starting fresh.
Absolutely fabulous ... it is beautifully different and like a breath of fresh air.
I loved it. Brendan you have inspired me:-)
Oh my gosh its is so beautiful. Brendan you are a genius with a green thumb. I love all your garden designs. I would love it if you can help me with my horrible backyard. I have patches in my grass, my cordylines are dying and so is my kangaroo paw trees. I just can't get anything to grow. Need your help desperately. PLEASE

To Trieshardgardener who is concerned about the lack of shade in the our garden. The established deciduous trees do a great job in Summer and allow the sun through in Winter. To Bronwyn. The purple low brick wall looks great if you see the house and garden as a whole. The same colour appears prominently in the area inside adjoining the garden.To Rory54 - I'm assuming your garden is not built on sand and gets an amount of sun, Bottlebrush and Grevillias do not survive in this environment. This garden still needs watering but we now harvest our own water.To all of you who enjoyed watching this remarkable transformation, we would like you to know that six months on the garden is even more beautiful and the joy of working with Brendan and his wonderful team was an experience money can't buy. Thanks Brendan
Sensational..love your work and passion Brendan..a very moving episode..caught the heart and spirit of the clients...so inspiring...I cry everytime i watch it..the colour and groove of the design is spot on for Lynne and Graham. May you have many beautiful sunny days and warm memorable nights enjoying your garden and the spirit of you daughter with you at all times.
Love, peace and happiness always

I think this garden is fantastic, I love the circles they look brilliant, the fire area is super.
I love the show it would be great if Brendan could spruce up a rental property garden something we can take when we leave love it love it.
just a few word LOVED IT ALL
LOOOVE the colour, LOOOOVE the structure .... WOW ... What a job well done!!
I've watched ALL the Dry Spell Gardens so far, each twice in an evening, and I think the programs fascinating and the gardens beautiful.
I love this too... Pls Pls Please come to Perth and do my garden. Your work it true artistry and I am constantly amazed. I am lost when looking at my garden and would welcome you with open arms in my front and back yard... A garden that is beautiful, sexy and water saving is such a hard ask for an un-qualified eye. Take care. Jo Ball - email@example.com
I love this design...Just bought home of my own and the gardens are a mess...Brendans gardens provide heaps of ideas for me to design my own garden...I don't expect to produce something as good as this but if I get an approximation and have 'something Brendan Moar might have designed' I will be thrilled. Of course, Brendan you could always come to my place and use it in your NEXT series!!!!!
Love it, love the structure, the colours, the hybal blocks ..... excellent job.
sensational !!!! Brendan Moar is the only landscape designer who makes sense to me.
His thoughtfulness to environment existing and otherwise makes his gardens very special . this one I just loved .
Just so you know Ive been waiting since the first advert for this show and it was definately everything I was hoping for(Huge fan of Moar Gardening).The work Brendan has done is inspiring. To think that you did it for 30000 was a good effort. The red tiles, the hebel stones the pink wall the red clothesline, all cutting edge and definately a huge wow factor. Love the design, and the back wall is amazing, where do you get the idea's. Anyway love the garden wish you could heaps more than six weeks, I'll be watching reruns forever. Awesome work Brendan look forward to the rest of the shows. Are you going to do abook for this series too? Please!! All the best joe
The pictures look fantastic. Can't wait to see the show.
Do you need another yard? I've got quite an interesting property next to a river and national park if you do.
watched your show tonight thought it was going to look a bit out there and not suitable to the house ..not ..great job on that AAA
** the one above if you looked straight at it with out thinking it resembles a Japanese feel but 5 sec's later when you see it check the detail and appreciate every feature it's aussie clean & crisp and relaxing...absolutely love every thing about it especially all the colours...great show too, will inform others about it ..(congrat's. Alan)
Really enjoyed watching the garden be transformed into a relaxing, inviting and personal space for this couple - it really captured their characters and lifes journey. I would love to know where to get or order the metal circle 'walk through' structures as l am helping my young kids school design a space and am trying to encourage a bit of wow factor- so any info and l may just convince them to do something creative and stunning! thanks for the show and any help - Andrea
As someone who entered this competition with hope Brendan would come to my house, I was very eager to see how he was going to tackle this project. I have to say I sat there green with envy as I watched this garden transform. What an amazing transformation! JEALOUS!!!
This guy is a legend !!!
So modern and relaxing. I love seeing these sort of shows. It inspires you to dream and believe it's possible to turn any outdoor space into an oasis.
Awesome - to change from what it was where everywhere was the same overgrown jungle with nothing distinguishing to be so enticing, eye-catching and intriguing. No wonder they were delighted to get a place that can be part of their living style and space.

Arthur who is featured in the episode doesn’t do domestic work unfortunately, however any laser cutting company in the yellow pages should be able to help you out, once such company is Excel Laser Cutting, 3 Short St Chatswood 2067 Tel: 02 9417 7870.
Metal rings are great and small fencing from area of gardens. Great.
Walk way through ring excellent.
OX back wall was very brave. It worked. You may not be that lucky all the time.
Green mound fantastic. Purple low brick wall, don't do that again!
This garden is just terrific, it is a garden that hjas personal meaning and style and the colours used are bright cheerful and easy to live with . Well Done. Cheryle Kyneton Victoria
there didn't appear to be enough shade, did I miss it? It also seemed to be very expensive. did it really cost $30,000, some break down of prices would be useful?
I loved the idea of taking their daughters favourite saying and placing it as a feature on the wall in her memory. Can anyone tell me where i would be able to get this done?
I love the bold and fun design and have been given so many ideas for how to create a "Dr Suess" design into the garden I have for my children. Hebel is a great medium and I am inspired to work on it. Also I never thought of my colours but the scheme is fun yet tranquil. I hope that some of these wonderful ideas I can use too!! What an awesome space!
I wish he could do my garden, as it looks sculptural (picture) as well as a garden.He makes you look at your own garden and see how to change or improve it to became more enjoyable for all.
I was a little worried half way through but it looked fantastic when finished. What an imagination.
I was surprised that the garden needed an irrigation system. I was quite dismayed when Brendan said that if the rain water tank was empty the irrigation system would revert to mains supply and come on twice a week in line with restrictions.I thought that the idea of using native plants was that they would survive on little water - plants such as bottlebrush and grevillia in my garden survived the drought and are now thriving again.
I thought that this show would highlight how we could have a garden that would not require wartering twice a week. Australian natives have survived in our environment for centuries with the extremes of weather we exprience.
The design was good but overall I was disappointed with the show
I adored this redesign. I loved the green wall, the giant 'pebbles' and had great faith in the grassy knoll coming to fruition. We live in rural Victoria where it is painfully dry and eroding with every breath of wind. That said, there were principles of episode one which could be applied to our own garden to preserve what's left and help it regenerate. Congratualtions on a fantastic episode.
he's a very clever man very out there he has an amazing immagination and not afraid to use vibrant colours which is a refreshing change well done bud stay with it we need you.
I don't think I have ever cried through a gardening show! The tribute to the Lynne & Graham's daughter so beautiful! Well done Brendan & Team! Great use of colour, design and appreciation for the clients wants & more so their needs!
Brendan's design is fun, colourful and most of all a people space! I want more, can't wait until next week...definately will be there every Thursday tuning in :)
I love Brendans bold & daring takes on design, it's such a refreshing change to see people going beyond the blue couch lawns and incorporating amazing design pieces into their everyday lives. So glad i found the details in the factsheet for that cool metal that rusts as i have an idea for my garden that it's perfect for..Can't wait to see more episodes
Brendan has created something amazing - very different to what Lynne and Graham had before, so rather daring! It was a joy to watch this episode. I loved the wall created in their daughter's memory.
Fantastic! Loved the giant pebbles...and the hoop walk way. Very ingenious.
Very touching episode as well. Will tune in again.
