Browse the Best Professional UK Landscapes in Our Design Awards

August 1, 2017

Our judges have chosen the finalists in all eight categories of our 2017 Considered Design Awards. In the six categories open to projects in the US and Canada, your vote will choose the winners. Be sure to vote once per day, now through August 4, on both Gardenista and Remodelista.

The winners of our two United Kingdom categories will be chosen by our judges and announced on August 7. Browse below to see the five finalist projects in the best Professional UK Landscape category.

Marigold Cottage Project

Walled Pennine Garden Project

Above: South Pennine Walling submitted the Walled Pennine Garden in Hood Green, England, picked by guest judge Rita Konig: “I love the combination of the drystone walling and the planting. The choice of plants is so gentle and the colors are so pretty against the color and strength of the stone. I love it.”

An African-Inspired Garden Project

Above: Studio 29 Architects entered An African-Inspired Garden in Holland Park, a London project chosen by Rita Konig: “I think this is a really good use of a small space and I love the wall painted in that pretty color. This is really an extension of the room that leads onto it and I think that is a great way to approach a small city garden. I love the planting, too.” Photograph by Andrew Beasley.

East London “Dark & Exotic” Garden Project

Royal Bank of Canada Garden Project

Above: Harris Bugg Studio submitted this Royal Bank of Canada Garden at the RHS Chelsea 2017 show in London, chosen by Rita Konig: “I think the planting choices here are very smart, particularly with the hardscaping. I love how it all works together; I think it is a really beautiful tableau.” Photograph by Marianne Majerus.

Don’t forget to vote once per day in the non-UK contest categories on both Gardenista and Remodelista, now through August 4.
