Fisher Tomlin & Bowyer wins three garden design awards

A new 1.6ha community garden for veterans in Wales and a luxury garden on a private estate in Surrey have secured awards from different quarters for Fisher Tomlin & Bowyer this autumn.

Thanks to the efforts of staff and volunteers at Blind Veterans UK the ‘Centenary Woodland Garden’ designed by the company and opened in June this year at their Llandudno Centre has been awarded a Royal Horticultural Society standard of 'Outstanding' in the 'It's Your Neighbourhood' Wales in Bloom competition.

The garden was designed across 1.6ha of woodland and including workshops, sculpture, walks, beehives and more than 4,000 plants and 10,000 bulbs.


Andrew Fisher Tomlin said: "Working with Blind Veterans UK has been a brilliant journey that proves that gardens can provide great therapeutic benefits to a whole neighbourhood and bring a community together."


The second award for a new home by Q Developments in Surrey, for which Fisher Tomlin & Bowyer provided the garden design, has won the ‘Best Luxury House’ Award at the What House? Awards 2015. The judges praised "the cumulative effect of the subtle, luxurious detailing that makes this a timeless property of the finest finish." Dan Bowyer who led the garden design said: "We're delighted to be associated with a project and a client of this caliber and to secure our second What House Award."


Fisher Tomlin & Bowyer has also been awarded the Build Architecture Awards ‘Garden Designers of the Year in London 2015’. The award is made annually to practices that have shown expertise in the profession and in particular for real gardens and publically accessed landscapes across a range of clients and locations.
