To have graduates winning awards so consistently is testament to the skill and professionalism of our tutors and lecturers

London College of Garden Design (LCGD) Graduates triumphed once again at last month’s Society of Garden Designers Awards with two Graduates receiving two awards each.

Emily Erlam won in the ‘Small Budget Garden’ category for “The Experimental Station” for which the judges said ‘A modest design that is fundamentally more interesting because of it. Simple but fun.’ Emily was also jointly awarded the Future Designer award for her ‘Interesting modern take on a country garden” built by Landform Consultants. She said ‘To win an award is an amazing feeling. For me the award was an opportunity to take a pause and reflect on the success of the garden and know for this moment, this garden was recognised for being great. ‘

An LCGD Graduate once again triumphed in the Student of the Year Award with Tom Massey, who graduated in 2015, winning both Domestic and Commercial categories for work completed on his one-year Garden Design Diploma course. Tom said, "having my work singled out and praised by judges Sarah Eberle and Cleve West, both multiple award-winning designers, was an honour. LCGD provided me with an inspiring education, hopefully winning the awards will provide the catalyst I need to launch my new career."

Andrew Wilson, Director of Garden Design Studies at LCGD said ‘we’re delighted that our students are leaving the college with a firm basis in design that is recognised by the Society of Garden Designers. To have graduates winning awards so consistently is testament to the skill and professionalism of our tutors and lecturers that they meet on the course.’
