Gardens by Caspian Robertson, Joan Mulvenna, Lucinda Parish and Sid Stratton & Bridget Robinson will be built and displayed at the show from 11-14 June at The NEC, Birmingham.
Competition ambassador Roger Platts, five times gold medallist at RHS Chelsea Flower Show including Best in Show, mentored the finalists through the process.
He said: "The competition challenges designers to consider how a small space may be transformed, utilising the same materials to create very different effects, thus inspiring the visitor with great take home ideas for their own gardens."
Details of the winning gardens:
Caspian Robertson ’In the Loop’
Perfect for anyone who wishes to enjoy an outdoor space during warm summer evenings away from the hustle and bustle. This garden is inspired by the non-stop, busy nature of everyday life offering a place to relax, reflect and enjoy a moment of peace.
Joan Mulvenna ’A garden for all ages’
Designed with a family in mind, this design shows how a standard backyard can be transformed into a place full of opportunity for a child’s imaginative play, from hopscotch to connecting with nature, whilst easily reverting to that all-important relaxing adult space.
Lucinda Parish ’The Flow Garden’
Created for a suburban setting the design ties in with modern architecture with strong landscaping, water feature and striking planting. The contemporary nature of this garden design uses lines and vistas to draw you in and, once there, allow you to daydream.
Sid Stratton & Bridget Robinson—’Slow Burn’
Celebrating seasonal variations this garden is a wonderful space to enjoy year round, offering up beautiful views from the house through every season. From the fresh colours of spring to a dramatic winter where linear and cuboid structure dominates.
