Endrick’s Show Garden takes Best New Show Garden 2017

We are delighted to announce that Designer Lynn Hill’s Tangible Garden, built by Endrick Landscapes, has won Best New Show Garden and a Silver Gilt medal at Gardening Scotland in Edinburgh.

The garden also acted as a stand for the British Association of Landscape Industries (of which we are an award winning member). We were supported by fellow Bali members who mucked in with the construction, particularly GP Plantscape and Ashlea Landscapes.

Fantastic Drystone Walls were generously constructed FOC by Dougie Clark Clachan Mhor Stonework.

We were also supported by the following valued suppliers; CED (Walling Stone and Paving), Mcnairs Builders Merchant (Timber), and GP green recycling (Soil)

This was the first ever show garden for Endrick, with crowds of visitors complimenting the garden’s colourful, traditional planting design, celebration of outdoor living and high quality build. BALI’s Chief Executive Wayne Grills and Marketing and Communications Manager Darren Taylor were on-hand meeting members of the public who were interested in the Tangible Garden, to promote landscaping and garden design services offered by members regionally. Tangible Garden was also featured extensively on BBC2 Scotland’s Beechgrove Garden programme.

Wayne Grills, BALI’s Chief Executive, commented; ‘Tangible Garden represented a truly collaborative effort across our regional Scotland membership, with support from a wide number of Contractors and Affiliate members who helped with the construction and supply of plants and paving. We are incredibly proud of Lynn, Kenny and Lewis for their award-winning garden and their hard work and efforts in representing the association in such a positive way. The design brief of creating a multi-level, realistic, domestic rear garden that celebrated outdoor living, truly hit the mark, as show visitors loved the concept, inspiring them to recreate the same, or similar style, for their own home.’

Gardening Scotland was held over the weekend of 2-4 June at a sun kissed Royal Highland Centre, with organisers confirming record numbers over the three days. Visitors were greeted with hundreds of exhibits selling gardening products, as well as stunning floral and horticultural displays alongside a superb array of unique show gardens.

We thoroughly enjoyed the process and were very proud of the end result. Thanks again to all involved!
