The Health for Life in the community show garden by Mosaic Design's won 'best show garden' and 'gold' awards at this years' BBC Gardeners' World Live.

"There’s a lot of public landscaping delivered through charitable groups." He said HLF and EU-funded projects often need external landscape architectural advice. He has worked on projects for Conservation Volunteers, Groundwork and local charities recently.

Working with Poolscapes and Biotop, he is assessing potential lido renovations for councils. "Some councils can’t afford to run lidos but there are lower costs for natural swimming pools," Morgan said.

Mosaic Design's Gardeners’ World Live garden was a celebration of community gardening and the Health for Life in the community programme, funded by the Mondelez  International Foundation.

Big Fish built the garden and support came from Bradstone, Rolawn, Barcham Trees and others.

The Gardenmakers and Claudia de Yong won the People’s Choice Award at BBC Gardeners’ World Live after visitors to the show were asked to vote for their favourite garden on the APL Avenue.

Best Construction Landscaper was Eat & Shelter designed by Michael John McGarr and built by MJM Landscapes.

Best Beautiful Border was Fire & Ice by Martin Lines.
