Hoping to capitalize on homeowners who will be breaking ground soon, Business Insider announced on March 6 the debut of HGTV's new website, HGTVGardens.com. Although the network has had a number of gardening related shows, playing in the dirt has taken a backseat on the main website, which focuses more on interior-related DIY projects.
Separating the indoor and outdoor content onto two different sites will make it easier for gardening enthusiasts to get their hands dirty without having to weed through what color is hot for living rooms this year, or how to install kitchen cabinets like a pro.
With so many people plugged in with their go-anywhere tablets and smartphones, having a site dedicated to gardening is a smart move. TiVo is handy for grabbing a TV show that you might want to review later, but information on a website is available any hour of the day and can be brought outside with you as you plan your garden.
What plants does HGTV Gardens recommend for that spot in the shade? What type of fencing is best to keep wildlife from helping themselves to your plant-life? Take that knowledge with you in your pocket when you head to the local nursery or home improvement store.
HGTVGardens.com isn’t likely to replace your favorite gardening shows, but for those who spend more time looking at a much smaller device than a big-screen TV, it’s sure to be a hit.
