The yearly event includes workshops and talks by industry leaders


The Landscape Show trade event returns to Battersea Park in south London this autumn, showcasing a range of innovative products and plants, and hosting a range of seminars and workshops by leading lights from the garden design and landscape architecture industries.

The Registered and Pre-Registered SGD Members who will be speaking at this year’s show include Andrew Fisher Tomlin FSGD, Kate Gould, John Wyer FSGD, Ann-Marie Powell MSGD, Philippa O’Brien MSGD, Charlotte Rowe MSGD, Jo Thompson MSGD, Tom Massey, Victoria Chesterfield, Faith Ramsay and Peter Eustance MSGD.

The designers will be covering a broad range of subjects, such as the use of water and lighting in gardens, which Charlotte Rowe will be discussing, and the ‘Acoustic Landscape’, a talk by Peter Eustance about the correlation between music and landscapes, showing how acoustic installations can be of value in the fields of therapy and mental health. Andrew Fisher Tomlin will be hosting conversations with celebrated designers on the key factors that have contributed to their success, and how they manage the long-term sustainability of their gardens after they have been built.

On Tuesday 19 September there will be a Landscape Architecture-focused afternoon session in conjunction with RIBA, the Landscape Institute and New London Architecture, which will feature a panel discussion followed by a PechaKucha session (20 slides for 20 seconds each) from a selection of well-known practices; the SGD AGM will take place at a nearby hotel. GDJ editor Stephanie Mahon will be giving a talk on getting your gardens featured in magazines on Wednesday 20 September.

Also at the show, ‘Work Clinics’ will enable designers to bring along examples of their work before submitting them to clients. A panel of experts will then assess the designs and offer constructive advice where needed.
