Warnes McGarr & Co finalist for Northern Design Awards

Garden design and landscape consultancy Warnes McGarr & Co has been shortlisted for the Northern Design Awards for its cutting edge garden at RHS Tatton in July 2017.

The desert-inspired garden was entered into the commercial landscaping design category. The awards will be announced on Friday, November 24 at the Principal Hotel in Manchester and the gala dinner will be hosted by Wayne Hemingway.

Garden designer Michael John McGarr and landscape designer Robert Warnes designed a thought-provoking and striking garden at the Cheshire flower show, which has already been awarded a gold medal, as well as Best Construction and Best Future Spaces Garden, by the RHS judges.

Their futuristic dystopian design draws upon how climate change will dramatically change our traditional British landscape, and imagines what our gardens would be like with predicted temperature increases.

Many species of native plants would be extinct in the UK, and our gardens are likely to resemble the landscape of South California or Mexico, with only drought-tolerant plants surviving.

With striking large cacti and desert planting, sheltered structures made from corroded steel and large-scale porcelain steps, drawing the eye up the garden, the ‘2101’ garden was a real talking point of the garden show.

Michael said: “We’re really very pleased to hear that our ‘2101’ garden is up for another award. Both myself and Rob love designing show gardens because we can really let our creativity loose and demonstrate the absolute best workmanship that we really pride ourselves upon.

“We have a long list of new client briefs to work on, so 2018 is shaping up to be very busy for our consultancy.”

The Warnes McGarr & Co design studio is based in Wigan, with plans to open a Knutsford office in the near future.

The duo have won multiple awards for their cutting edge garden and landscape designs already, including:

– Gold medal, as well as Best Construction and Best Future Spaces Garden at RHS Tatton 2017 for show garden ‘2101’
– Highly commended in the Hard Landscaping category in the APL awards 2017
– Silver medal at RHS Tatton 2016 for show garden ‘From Hall to Home’.
– Gold and Best Construction at BBC Gardeners’ World Live 2016 for show garden ‘Eat & Shelter’.
– Commendation in APL awards for a residential garden in Wigan.
– Silver at RHS Tatton 2015 for show garden ‘Cloud 9 garden’ (the company was known as Living Spaces).
