The successful entry highlighted the achievements of Painshill Park Trust over the past thirty years including the restoration of the crystal Grotto, the reinstatement of the Five Arch Bridge and the Woollett Bridge.

It also gave details about the new planting schemes which have been implemented to create an authentic appearance to the landscape garden as a result of the Ornamental Planting Review.

Herrenhäuser Gärten (Germany) and Sigurtà Garden Park in Italy are also in the running for the award.

The awards are run by the European Garden Heritage Network, led by the Schloss Dyck Foundation. Winners will be announced in Hamburg on 4th September 2015.
