Watch Gardening by the Yard

Gardening by the Yard is a gardening show that is hosted by Paul James. He is a master gardener who obtained that status in 1983. Although he studied botany and plant studies as an undergraduate, he states that he has learned the most about plants while digging in the dirt. James is the creator, writer and producer of the Gardening by the Yard show; which he films mostly in his own yard located in Tulsa, OK. His topics include everyday organic gardening and landscaping, seasonal tasks, problems, and projects.

James works to keep the show relevant to people who want a great looking yard, but fret about the time commitment involved in the upkeep of that yard. Guest appearances by other notable gardeners are occasional, as are shows on location at nurseries that are local and across the country.

James uses a practical yet whimsical hosting style to demonstrate gardening technique and proper use of gardening and landscaping tools. If he has a problem in his yard, he will feature it in an episode as he works to find a suitable solution. James uses these episodes to stay connected to his viewers, after all, the climate will not be controlled by even the most knowledgeable everyday gardener.
