Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Debuting July 29, 2003, on the BBC America satellite service, Ground Force America was the U.S. version of the popular British landscaping series Ground Force, which had been on the air since 1998. Created in partnership with the producers of another similar U.K. series, The Healing Garden, the "new" Ground Force traveled all over America for the express purpose of "transforming" neglected backyards and gardens. The same landscaping team that had risen to stardom on the original Ground Force were also in attendance here: Alan Titchmarsh, Charlie Dimmock (a lissome young lady despite her masculine moniker), Tommy Walsh, Will Shanahan, and Kirsty King.
