Voting opens today for the Society of Garden Designers People’s Choice Award 2017.
The award is the only award that is decided by public vote and not by the awards judging panel. 17 projects are eligible across 7 categories including three Residential Garden categories, International, Public & Communal Outdoor Space, Garden Jewel and Roof Garden.
Projects range from an Eastern-inspired family garden and the mature garden of a Victorian Villa, to the redesign of a 17-acre estate in Gloucestershire from paddocks to a formal landscape, a public garden designed as a contemporary playscape and a roof garden on one of the largest roof terraces in London.
Chosen by an independent judging panel drawn from experts across the industry, the projects represent some of the very best in garden design from right across the UK and abroad.
Members of the public can vote for their favourite garden via the SGD Awards website www.sgdawards.com. Votes close on 31 October and the winner will be announced at The SGD Awards ceremony on Friday 2 February 2018 at London’s Landmark Hotel.
