The stunning Show Gardens are the highlight of the Show with great ideas for gardens of all sizes! Professional designers and landscapers are creating gardens that will fill visitors to the Show with inspiration, and with ideas to make the most of every outdoor space. And the designers are available to give advice or arrange to help design your garden at home.
This year saw added excitement with designers competing for the UTV The Magazine Show Garden award which was won by the striking contemporary garden ‘A Room for All Seasons’ designed by Michael O’Reilly MGLDA & Maurice Maxwell. Judges awarded two Gold Awards, one to ‘A Room for All Seasons’ and one to the highly commended family garden created by Ryan McGee, ‘Family Time’.
