Gemma Collins has been sharing envy-inducing snaps of her new dream home and garden, but she admitted the struggle was real with maintaining a huge garden.
The Towie star, 40, got the keys to her stunning new pad in January and has spent the last couple of months decorating the interior and garden.
She moved into the £1.35 million five-bedroom converted barn in Essex in February, but didn’t realise that the lush grounds that surround the property would be rather tough to maintain.
Gemma took to Instagram to show her followers that she had enlisted her manager Mark – dressed in a suit and smart shoes – to help her drag a hose out to the very edge of her grounds to make sure the newly-planted trees didn’t die.
She told her followers: ‘Guys, I don’t know if anyone can help me on a water system. I’ve got Mark watering the plants because I don’t know how to get a hosepipe up this end of the garden.’
Mark could be seen in his Hugo Boss suit and tie as Gemma told him to ‘keep going’ to make sure her trees were well-watered to help them grow.

Gemma appealed to her followers to help her design a water system to make sure her plants were looked after, as the hose did not even reach some of the trees planted on the ends, meaning Mark and another helper had to carry jugs of water down to the end of the huge plot.
While watering the end of her garden might be a struggle, Gemma has previously shared the makeover of the area outside her house, where she has had an elaborate floral arch installed as well as elaborately sculpted trees.
She told her followers: ‘If you want to be happy for a lifetime make your garden beautiful. I have become obsessed with the garden and the healing vibe it brings.
‘I actually would love to do a show on gardening he he what’s happened to me I absolutely love it.’
