Association of Professional Landscapers chairman Adam Frost taps into booming Egyptian landscape market

Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) chairman Adam Frost is planning an Egyptian offensive as new developments demand gardens.

Frost has joined forces with a client in Cairo, Egypt, to plan work in new developments springing up in the country.

Frost, who designed shopping channel QVC's RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden this year, has already started work on a garden in Cairo, and is about to begin a second.

He has been exploring the country's plants so he can create gardens that will thrive in the Egyptian climate.

"I went right into the Nile Delta looking at plants -- there is an amazing selection," he revealed.

Frost's first Egyptian client has now engaged him to work on helping develop a landscape business.

"He has started to get me involved in landscape and garden design, and I am working with him with new clients," explained Frost.

"There are about 15 million people in Cairo and as you come out of the city and get on the main road to [the coastal city of Alexandria] there is development all over the place. People in Cairo are moving out to these suburbs so there is definitely a lot of work there."
