Official Landscape Legend 2024-2025 | Auditions, Casting & Dates

FOXTEL is casting for a replacement host for landscape designer Charlie Albone on Selling Houses Australia.  We’re on the hunt for a charismatic, passionate landscaping pro. If you know more than a thing or two about gardening and are keen to give TV a crack, we want to hear from you!  The successful applicant will also become News Corp Australia’s new gardening columnist.

Selling Houses Australia is a long running top rating property show on the LifeStyle Channel – it helps sell homes which are languishing on the market by improving the interiors and exteriors.  You’ll join property expert Andrew Winter and interior designer Shaynna Blaze as co-host and new landscaping expert.

Applications must meet the following criteria: 

•    Horticultural / landscape design diploma or degree or relevant experience.

•    Experience in landscape design

•    Experience in hands on landscaping  / gardening

•    Must be a great communicator and team player and not be afraid to get your hands dirty on camera

•    Ideally can write (part of the role will involve writing relevant articles/website pieces).

•    Be willing to travel from July 2020 till December 2020 Australia wide. (This is close to a full time commitment which would prevent you undertaking other full time work during this period)

•    Be able to attend site visits (recces) and design gardens between June 2020 and December 2020 Australia wide.

•    Be available to screen test in late April, early May 2020.

•    Must be a permanent resident or citizen of Australia.
