SGD AWARDS

The finalists in The Society of Garden Designer (SGD) Awards have been announced.

The Awards, which were open to SGD Fellows (FSGD), Registered Members (MSGD), Pre-Registered and Student Members of the Society, received a fantastic response with over 80 designers submitting projects across the 12 categories.

Entries were open to projects with a practical completion period covering five years, reflecting the important contribution of time in the creation of landscapes. Submissions ranged from a 400-hectare public garden in northern Japan to small urban courtyards.

We are delighted that some of our professional members have also been short listed.
