Landscapes of the Fast & Famous is conceived to be a weekly, half hour program, which will feature the landscapes and residences of celebrities known for their speed, dedication and distinction in their chosen fields.
The goal of the program is to combine gardening/landscaping interests
for motor race enthusiasts, as well as other sports fans, and enable
them to ‘visit’ the homes of their idols while learning about
horticulture in their areas. Gardening tips for each climatic region
would be the crux of each show. This, ideally, would educate the viewers
as to which plants grow well in their areas with instructions on how to
have success with their own gardening projects.
On site interviews with the celebrity, initial design ideas, views of
the developing landscapes, installation techniques, how to choose the
correct materials for each project will be included. During the
landscape demonstrations, flashbacks of actual race footage, accompanied
with comments by the ‘fast & famous’ person is another planned
feature of the program.
A more whimsical segment, of at least some of the programs, would be
to show the utilization of racetrack or other sports venues
paraphernalia such as tires or gearboxes to be used as planters or
garden decorations such as wind chimes, water features or statues.
The Certified horticulturist narrator/interviewer of the program is
in the unique position of having over thirty years experience,
internationally, in this field, with the added bonus of having worked as
an Indy 500 mechanic. Australian Outback Plantation, his company, is
the official landscape provider to the Phoenix International Raceway, a
NASCAR track facility.
