The SGD Awards is supported by a number of generous sponsors without whom the Awards scheme could not run.
A shortlist of 23 projects has been announced across 13 award categories include a cliff garden in Bermuda, a roof garden and basement courtyard in an old factory building in London, a family garden on an exposed cliff top overlooking the North Sea and a modern meadow.
Selected by a panel of leading figures in the garden design industry, the projects represent some of the very best in garden design from the UK and abroad. spanning residential gardens, public and commercial spaces and community projects.
For the first time, the shortlist also includes contenders for the Beth Chatto Award, introduced this year to highlight the global impact ecological planting can have, by recognising a project where the design demonstrates the creative, ecological use of materials and planting to maximise sustainability, minimise maintenance and attract pollinators and wildlife.
