The Garden Company Ltd is on the shortlist for two highly-respected national design awards. Now in their seventh year, the SGD Awards recognise outstanding achievement in the garden design profession. They are the only awards dedicated solely to landscape and garden design in the UK.
The shortlisted Garden Company projects are:
Laurel Cottage in Northwest London
Shortlisted in the Small Residential category. This garden adds extra ‘living/entertainment’ potential to the house. The newly-created garden was a tranquil oasis in a suburban setting. There is a flow and connection from the house into the garden, terraces and a timber walkway leading into the foliage-covered space. A granite water feature and subtle light fittings provided extra visual interest and a relaxing atmosphere.
The Threshing Barn in Hertfordshire
Shortlisted in the Medium Residential category. This is a contemporary meadow garden for a modern barn set on top of the Chiltern Hills. A sense of sanctuary was essential around the house whilst maintaining a visual connection with the farmland. A meadow using native calcareous wildflower species provided a connection to the countryside. A vegetable garden, herb garden and orchard are prominent for the clients’ use.
A panel, including designers, academics, journalists and horticulturists will select the winning designs. The awards ceremony will take place in London in February 2019.
James Scott MBALI MSGD, The Garden Company’s MD and principal designer, commented:
“These Awards are highly regarded by design professionals throughout the UK and internationally. We were finalists in two categories last year and we are very happy to receive recognition for our high standards by the SGD judging panel again. I would like to thank our clients for the opportunity to create beautiful gardens for them. We want to also send a huge thank you and well done to our landscape teams and trusted suppliers’.
