Show Garden success for St Albans based company at BBC Gardeners’ World Live

St Albans based company, Lanwarne Landscapes and in house designer Martin Lines, are delighted to have been awarded a Silver Gilt and Best Construction in Show at BBC Gardeners’ World Live 50th Anniversary show 2017.  The Contemporary Bee and Butterfly Garden is Lanwarne Landscapes’ first Show Garden and so they are over the moon with the result. The show garden was broadcast on Gardeners World on Friday 16 June, with Joe Swift referring to Martin Lines as an ‘emerging talent’, who we ‘may see at Chelsea one day’. Joe also complemented the garden finishing, referring to it as ‘immaculate’.  [The show is currently available on BBC Iplayer and the segment on our garden is 28.50 to 29.36 mins].

The garden was designed for a couple who work long hours and have an active social life, so need a relaxing outdoor space. The garden includes an outdoor dining area, fire pit and living picture planted with specially grown moss, which was a huge hit with Joe Swift and the public. The garden is designed to encourage wildlife, including timber posts incorporating bee and insect houses and bubble fountains that act as both a water feature and safe places for the bees and insects to drink.

We were very lucky to have great local sponsors supporting us, the beautiful planting came from Aylett Nurseries, with aggregates donated by Deamer Ltd and electrical works by DB Renovations. Additional sponsors included London Stone, who supplied the paving and cladding, and Black Rock.

This isn’t Lanwarne Landscapes first time at BBC Gardeners World live. Last year Lanwarne Landscapes and, in house garden designer, Martin Lines won Gold and Best Border in Show in the Beautiful Borders category.
