Former RHS head of creative development Wilson will launch his new TV show The Landscape Man this week.
He will appear on BBC Breakfast on Thursday morning (22 April) before his show - featuring landscape projects across the UK - airs on Channel 4 that evening at 8pm.
Wilson - who is landscape director at The Landscape Agency - told HW he hoped the show would prove positive in promoting the landscape industry.
"Having gardening represented in a different way than just the back garden shows such as Gardeners' World and seeing something a bit bigger has got to be a good thing for the industry," he explained.
"One of the problems for the industry is that we've never really been taken that seriously. The more we can show the breadth of landscape and gardening, the better.
"The thing that [Kevin McCloud's show] Grand Designs did brilliantly was in bringing architecture to a general audience. If you told someone to sit down for an hour and watch a programme about architecture they would have probably said you've got to be joking.
"But if we can get anywhere close to that in showing the bigger picture of gardening, that has got to be a good thing."
