“We wanted to rescue things in a clean smart way and give people inspiration for doing this themselves in their own gardens,” they said.

Lead judge Andrew Fisher Tomlin said “All aspects from planting to individual design elements and spaces have been well considered and beautifully executed. Design details reward the eye wherever you look and further enhance the clarity of design. The aesthetic of the chosen design has been integrated throughout the space and results in a crisp, functional, fun and productive series of outdoor living spaces.”
