May’s magazine looked at the emerging talents of Adele Ford and Susan Willmott who together won the Student Design & Build Award 2011 launched by Wyevale East Nurseries in conjunction with the Royal Horticultural Society in 2010. They were also exhibiting at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July. The competition is famously tough, with a lot of work involved and skills to be used. Wyevale East believes that this helps to prepare students for the reality of work in garden design and helps to bridge the gap between the two.
The winning entry was a 7m x 5m garden called Coastal Drift; the brief was to create a garden that would be 6-7 miles from the coast, and part of a larger garden.
Pro Landscaper strongly supports and celebrates emerging talent within the industry. Adele and Susan went on to win a Gold medal for their garden at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and have both launched their own garden design businesses.
