To have graduates winning awards so consistently is a reflection on the skill and professionalism of our tutors and lecturers

London College of Garden Design (LCGD) Graduates triumphed once again at this month’s Society of Garden Designers Awards 2016 with two Graduates being jointly awarded the Society of Garden Designers’ Student Award for a domestic project sponsored by London Stone.

Victoria Chesterfield was jointly awarded for her design for Woodcombe Crescent with the judges saying this was “A strong, elegant design with a clear narrative that takes you on an interesting journey through the garden. ” Jane Finlay’s design ‘The Restorative Garden’ was praised for “A good use of space and interpretation of the brief. The theming was bold, without feeling imposed. Strong graphics that enhanced the narrative.” Jane has already been awarded the Association of Professional Landscape Designers’ International Student Design Award in the USA for the same garden.

LCGD graduates have won the Society of Garden Designers Student Award in 2012 (Jon Sims), 2013 (Nick Morton) and 2015 (Tom Massey), more than any other garden college in the UK. Andrew Wilson, Director of Garden Design Studies who has also won 3 awards in 2016 said ‘we’re delighted that our students are leaving the college with a firm basis in garden design that is recognised by the Society of Garden Designers. To have graduates winning awards so consistently is a reflection on the skill and professionalism of our tutors and lecturers who are all practicing garden specialists and designers.’
