Beth Chatto’s Sponsor Society of Garden Designers ‘Design for the Environment’ Award 2022
“The Design for the Environment award highlights the significant positive impact that design and the horticultural industry can bring to the world.
My grandmother, Beth Chatto, began her internationally renowned gardens by simply applying the principles of ecological and sustainable planting. Using a wide palette of plants suited to the diverse range of conditions Beth inadvertently also created a haven for wildlife – the extent of which is still unfolding as we realise just how biodiverse, as an ornamental garden, we are.
Beth’s sustainable and ecological use of plants was way ahead of their time, her practise holds true and has weathered the test of time.
We are proud to be able to sponsor this prestigious award and look forward to celebrating the imaginative, inspirational and environmentally beneficial designs that leading Garden Designers today create.
The ‘Design for the Environment’ Award is for any UK or international, residential, commercial, or public project of any size focused on environmental contribution and sustainability and is the only award open to members and non-members.”
