Five emerging talents to trailblaze at Landscape Show

Five fledgling designers are limbering up to show off their work at next month's Landscape Show -the first major public outing for some of the designers.

The new generation of garden designers and landscape architects were chosen to exhibit their work at the event from 15 to 17 March at London Olympia.

The five were chosen for their fresh approach in utilising small outdoor spaces, new technologies and ideas," said a spokeswoman for the show.

"The graduate gardens will include elements such as floating shelves, recycled materials, elevation and water features."

Amy Roberts from the English Gardening School will use recycled items such as an old TV aerial. A small pool with dyed black water meanwhile will reflect and bring in the sky above.

Greenwich University graduate Amelie Bethel’s concept is based on floating shelf-like wooden elements.

Thomas Houghton, alumni of Oxford College of Garden Design, will use sustainable materials to highlight how gardens can help solve future problems such as water shortages.

Zeno Perfetti from the London College of Garden Design will emphasize various dimensions of the garden through hard and soft elements.

English Gardening School entrant Manjo Madle will combine traditional gardens with modern, eco- friendly plants, flowers, colours and textures.

The Landscape Show, now in its second year, promotes horticulture, landscape and the garden design stars of the future.

Organiser Jeremy Storey-Walker said: "This is an amazing opportunity for these graduates as they will get a chance to see how this industry works.

"They will work to deadlines, source materials, engage contractors and finish projects to clients’ satisfaction in order to earn an income.
