BBC Gardeners World Live – Young Landscapers Award
This week (Wednesday 14th – Sunday 17th June) sees the return of the BBC Gardeners World Live Show at the NEC, Birmingham.
Continuing with our sponsorship of the World Skills competition and membership of the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL), we have supplied ecodek® material for the creation of the two gardens vying for success in the Young Landscapers Award.
In our blog a few weeks ago, we drew attention to the World Skills Competition, with the winners of the Landscaping Competition potentially earning a place to represent the UK in Russia, but also building in the Young Landscapers Award at next year’s BBC Gardeners’ World Live in June 2019.
Supported by the APL, this is the first year the Young Landscapers competition has run, promoting excellence and to support up and coming landscapers, encouraging them to engage with high profile projects.
Both gardens will test the full gamut of skills the young landscapers have acquired through their training, from choosing the products and plants, execution in planting and hard landscaping and project management.
We will report further on how the two teams get on, and their testimonials from working with ecodek® materials, along with photos from the competition.
We ran our own competition last week, a photo competition for our homeowner customers for the chance to win a pair of tickets for the BBC Gardeners World Live Show.
Our two winners were Dean from Hurst, Berkshire and David from Birmingham. We hope they enjoy their trips to the show!
