TV presenter slams garden cowboys

Domoney to reveal bad landscapers in two part ITV show

A TV gardener says householders who use unqualified landscapers are putting themselves at risk of being short-changed. David Domoney says it is better to hire a member of the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) or BALI than to take the cheaper option offered through local press and door-drop advertising. Domoney will dismantle bad landscaping projects and rebuild them in House of Horrors, to be broadcast on 27 February and 6 March on ITV. He said: “What I saw during filming shocked me. These unqualified tradesmen have the ability to induce people to pay money in advance. Once this happens, the householder might feel under pressure to fork out further for work that will end up being substandard. He added: “The fraudsters who feature on the show do nothing for the band of hard-working professionals in the industry.”
