As the reality TV boom took the broadcasting world by a storm, a few branches simultaneously started sprouting from its seed and heading off in new directions. The mainstream reality show entertainment consists of game shows played between the aspirant everyman star, or already reputed celebrities, who are invited to boost the show’s star power.
However, these offshoots oust the shell of a competitive reality game and instead attempt to put the reality TV formula into documenting a line of vocation. Most notably, we have seen detectives, surgeons, car mechanics, and entrepreneurs before, but the front that really continues to take the cake in recent years is the real estate sector.
House renovation and villa salesmanship have become a staple for many shows on major networks like Oxygen and Lifestyle, and the dominant narrative of these are about selling a particular kind of property to potential buyers. Accordingly, we have shows like ‘Log Cabin Living‘ and ‘Beach House Hunt’, most of them the same wine in different bottles.
However, DIY’s ‘Lawn and Order’ stands out from this web of real estate reality TV tropes, because it branches out into even more specific specialization, that of terrain editing. The show focuses not on the actual houses, but the exterior lots they are situated upon so that the house looks gorgeous from the walkway itself – a discipline known as landscaping and landscape designing.
‘Lawn and Order’ premiered on March 27, 2017, and aired eleven episodes as part of Season 1. What remains to be seen is, will there be a ‘Lawn and Order’ Season 2? We will delve into that but first, let’s quickly look into the details of the series
Who are the Hosts of Lawn and Order?
The show’s major area of focus is, of course, but this is only made possible by the field experts that both host the show, and get the job done. They are Sara Bendrick and Chris Lambton, both of whom are eminent internet personalities that you are likely to have seen before if you follow shows on landscape designing at all.
The Californian architect and landscape designer, Sara Bendrick, has her hands full when it comes to either turfing or TV show hosting, as she also hosts another DIY show, ‘Build it Like Bendrick’, as well as some other shows with different networks, including ‘I Hate My Yard’.
Chris Lambton also matches up to this, being the best landscaper in Massachusetts and having an even longer TV career including ‘Best Ever Treehouses’ and also a 2010 entry in ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette’, no less. Although it has not been officially confirmed, we can expect them to be back on Season 2 of ‘Lawn and Order’.
What is Lawn and Order About?
The show follows Sara and Chris, as they take on a project, in each episode, to beautify the backyards and increase the curb appeal, after pitching the prospects and estimation to the potential homeowners. The show stands apart in its execution, the uniqueness of its concept, and the skill it brings on the table when it comes to landscaping and landscape designing.
In the next season, we may see eight more episodes of cross-country landscaping and essentially home renovations without going into the interiors. ‘Lawn and Order’ makes for good and informative TV, based on which it has the potential of attracting high viewership numbers.
Lawn and Order Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Lawn and Order’ Season 1 premiered on March 27, 2017, and concluded on July 8, 2018. Being one of the few genuinely good landscaping shows that is not on syndication right now, ‘Lawn and Order’, even though it only has its debut season to display the numbers, boasts a high rating.
The show has much potential to turn into an at least five-series long saga, and DIY will certainly have all the incentive it needs to renew the show. That said, it has not yet been renewed. Though a specific release date has not been announced yet, we expect ‘Lawn and Order’ Season 2 to air sometime in 2020, perhaps around March. We will update this section as announcements in this regard are made, so do keep an eye out!
