2016 has been a great year for Viridian with three major Awards coming our way - click on the buttons to see images of each of our Award Winning gardens
The Society of Garden Designers' prestigious Awards ceremony will take place in January 2017 when the winner from each category will finally be announced. Until then we are delighted to be one of the finalist in the Small Residential Garden and People's Choice categories with our delightful Private Chelsea Garden. The Awards are open only to SGD Members who like Viridian's Anne Jennings progress through a demanding application process before being granted the appropriate level of Membership - in Anne's case the full qualification which allows her to use the MSGD recognition to her name.
BALI - the British Association of Landscape Industries embraces both landscape contractors and garden designers as Registered Members and once again Anne progressed through a demanding entry process to gain her MBALI qualification. BALI look for design excellence and expertise in the selection of award-winners, and recognised in our two entries, Cliveden Hotel Stage 2 and Private Chelsea Garden, the level of detailed design required of each project. The Principal Winner of each Award category will be announced at BALI's Award lunch in December 2016
Horticulture Week's Garden Retail Awards included for the first time in 2016 the category Garden Designer of the Year. Anne Jennings was delighted to receive her Highly Commended Award which recognises the business development and creative skills that have been invested in launching the new design studio. The entry detailed Viridian's 'USP' of having at its core a wealth of experience and knowledge contributed by the two Directors, Anne and Andrew, in the design and construction of landscapes, combined with essential horticultural expertise.
