Lanwarne takes gold award and best border

landwarne

Lanwarne Landscapes has been presented with a best border in show and gold award at the recent 2016 BBC Gardeners World Show Live in Birmingham.

With the shows’ theme being literature, Lanwarne Landscapes designer Martin Lines took inspiration from the Robert Frost poem “Fire and Ice” with a focus on humanitarian crises all over the world. The company also wanted to support the British Red Cross in its role as the largest humanitarian organisation in the world.  Martin’s design used colour, texture and form to represent the human experience of passion and hatred, drawing together the conflicting elements highlighted in the poets’ emotive message.

Martin said: “I’m so pleased with the overall visual impact of the border, the Fire and Ice schemes clearly mirror and flow into each other without using the same genus plants, I used pinker and darker Heuchera in the Fire border but didn’t use green Heucheras, such as ‘Lime Marmalade’ in the Ice border, but Brunnera, Salvia, Artemisia, Helichrysum, and the icy blue grass, Festuca Glauca. In the ice border I felt the Astrantia and Eryngium were an exquisite combination enhancing my concept, with the soft white flowers complimenting the sharp green/ blue thistles.

I’m so grateful to have exhibited and to have won gold was more than I could’ve hoped for. To have won “Best in show” on top of that has left me feeling absolutely delighted, especially as the show gardens and borders were judged by Chelsea Flower Show and Hampton Court Flower show judges.”

Company director James Lanwarne said: “Martin is a fantastic designer and I’m so proud of him and his success at BBC gardeners World Live. We’ve really enjoyed working on this project and are thrilled that all the hard work, passion and devotion has achieved such an impressive result. It’s been an amazing experience for Martin, the team and myself and we all look forward to our next venture!”
