The Society of Garden Designers has produced a short, consumer-focused film designed to explain the process of finding and working with a professional garden designer.

Featuring interviews with three Registered Members of the Society - Lee Bestall MSGD, Helen Elks-Smith MSGD and Adolfo Harrison MSGD - the film highlights the process and stages involved in commissioning a Registered Member from the initial brief through to the finished garden.

Shot on location in London, Sheffield and Hampshire, the film features interviews with clients who share their positive experiences of working with two of the designers featured in the film and the work of landscape contractors involved in the projects.

Richly illustrated with images of over 50 finished gardens, the film demonstrates the range of design styles and the scope of projects being undertaken by SGD designers. 

Sarah Morgan, Chair of the SGD said:  "We wanted to take the opportunity to demystify the process of working with a professional garden designer and show the public that the wide range of services our members offer are accessible to all. I feel sure that our Members will use and distribute the film widely and that it will further reinforce the importance of working with a Registered Member of the SGD."

The film will be available to view on the SGD YouTube channel and included on the new SGD website when it launches in September 2019.
