Speaking to Country Living earlier this year, they said: "The gardening world can be perceived as being quite boring but we want to rival that view. It's great to be able to show that you can have good fun and still love the outdoors.

"We want younger people to realise that gardening isn't 'uncool' - it's actually really fun and gives you the opportunity to get creative because there are so many different angles you can take.

"We love the idea that we can pave the way for the younger generations to get involved in garden design: we want people to see that it's just as interesting as architecture." Well if anyone can make gardening cool, it’s these two!

Having waved goodbye to Garden Rescue earlier this year, the pair have been focusing on their own business, Rich Landscapes, that they own together. They’ve also set up their own website showcasing their transformation of Harry’s welsh countryside property.

The Rich Brothers have been working on their own personal project

But away from the garden, Harry has been busy with his family life having recently welcomed his second child with wife Sue.

Taking to Instagram to share the news, Harry wrote: "Welcome Heath. Indigo is now a big sister." The unique name, meaning "dweller of the heathland" seems fitting for the son of a gardening expert!
