I used to be an HGTV junkie, but felt that there was a lack of a real and useful 'G' in the 'HGTV' idea, so I lost interest long ago. So I am excited to see Urban Dirt, a new Youtube show, that has the same HGTV flavor, but really does share useful information and looks to have potential for exciting and inspiring garden design. The show is hosted by David Walrod, a landscape designer in LA. There are only 2 episodes so far, but if you catch them both now, you will be ready for the next installment, and presumably the finishing of urban garden #1 tomorrow (Thursday Nov. 10th). New episodes are coming out weekly.
I am personally hoping that the show doesn't get stuck in southern California (There are actually 49 other states and infinite other growing zones, regional styles, and conditions that can be discussed) so I plan to follow along and see how it goes. In the mean time though, I am marveling at how blogging and the democratization of media has opened up so many doors to individuals to go out and create some really great niche content.
