APL Avenue at BBC Gardeners World Live once again impresses the judges

The five gardens built on APL Avenue at BBC Gardeners’ World Live have once again impressed judges, with this year’s results improving on last year. Lanwarne Landscapes has taken home the Best Construction award as well as a Silver-Merit, and two of the APL’s gardens, Living Gardens and Big Fish Landscapes, taking home a Gold.

With all of the APL gardens taking home at least a Silver-Merit, it once again shows proof of the high quality that APL Accreditation offers.

The five gardens at the competition received:

GOLD – Living Gardens, Lancashire. Designed by: Peter Cowell & Monty Richardson, Living Gardens

GOLD – Big Fish Landscapes, Herefordshire. Designed by: Cherry Carmen, Cherry Carmen Garden Design

Best Construction Award and SILVER-MERIT – Lanwarne Landscapes. Designed by: Martin Lines, Lanwarne Landscapes

SILVER-MERIT – Pro-Gardens Ltd, Oxfordshire. Designed by: Jamie Langlands, Pro-Gardens Ltd

SILVER-MERIT – Artemis Landscapes, Kent. Designed by: Viv Seccombe, Outside

The Wyevale Garden Centres ‘Romance in the Ruins’ Garden designed by Claudia de Yong Designs and built by Twigs Landscapes Design and Big Fish Landscapes received Gold and also the Best Show Garden.

The Tesco ‘Every Little Helps’ Garden designed by Owen Morgan, Mosaic Landscape Design and built by Big Fish Landscapes took Silver.

The five front or back gardens that feature on the APL Avenue, give the public the opportunity to witness first-hand what can be achieved in a small space. Landscapers are asked to produce a breakdown of costings to share with the public to give a greater understanding of the costs of a garden build.

Visitors to the BBC Gardeners’ World Live at NEC Birmingham, 15-18 June, are also being asked to vote for their favourite garden on the APL Avenue. The Peoples’ Choice voting will take place during the show days with the award being presented towards closure of the show on Sunday afternoon.
