Peter Cunliffe, owner of BALI registered contractor Northumbrian Landscaping, designed the garden and project managed the build with his colleague Andy Craddock from BALI registered contractor Turf’n’Earth.
BALI chief executive Wayne Grills said: "This is a fantastic achievement by our Yorkshire and North East Region members who have created a really stunning garden. Peter and Andy have led a great team throughout the build using products supplied by BALI Affiliate members and a specialist bamboo supplier. The result is a real showstopper and I know it will create huge interest and raise BALI’s profile amongst the public who will be visiting over the duration of the show."
BALI affiliate members CED Stone Group, Johnsons of Whixley, Green-tech and Lindum Turf, together with BS Bamboo, sponsored the garden by supplying their products.
Meanwhile, the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) teamed up with Paxman Landscapes at Harrogate to build "My Family", Paxman Landscapes' third successive creation at Harrogate, winning gold.
Paxman Landscapes director Justin Paxman said: "The emphasis of this year’s show garden is My Family – traditional values – mealtimes in the open air, spending quality time with family and friends and sharing stories of the day’s toils. We’re a traditional family business at Paxman Landscapes and this fits perfectly with the way we run things. It’s also a great representation of how the APL has developed into one big landscaping family."
Contributors included Paxman Landscapes, Jacksons Fencing, Cozy Bay Furniture, Kadai Fire bowls and JA Jones and Sons.
