Shows & Awards

Geo Designs have designed and created show gardens at national garden events throughout the UK since 2002.   We have been commissioned to produce innovative and bespoke gardens by event organisers and sponsors to represent their brand identities and to create unique visitor attractions.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2013:  Geo Designs created a bespoke stand for GardenGirl AB Sweden who specialise in garden clothing for women.  The horticultural feature included bespoke planters with flowering lavender and inset trellis with scented climbing roses and a mulch of dried rose petals.  Geo Designs was awarded a RHS Certificate of Commendation for the high quality and presentation of the exhibit.

Country Living Fair, Glasgow SECC 2006:  A “Highland Garden” was created as the main feature garden for the organisers of the Spring Fair.  Mature silver birch, Scots pine and blue, green and purple perennial planting, a granite plinth and patio, feature marble bench and a water feature complete with a silver leaping salmon rising from a dark pool.

Urban Gardens Exhibition, London Olympia 2004:  A Sex and the City Garden.  Geo Designs was approached by the organisers of the exhibition to create a third show garden for Urban Gardens 2004 based around the character Carrie Bradshaw from the romantic sitcom.

The setting was evening time within a small courtyard garden. A four poster bed set above a reflective slab of Italian marble served as the main feature of the garden, which was richly adorned with scented climbing roses and a mattress of musky moss. A still pool, illuminated with candlelight, was set within a garden of climbers, mosses and ferns to create a sensual “Outdoor Bedroom”. A plasma screen displayed a roaring log fire in the background whilst a romantic operatic aria played softly… the rest was left to your imagination.

Urban Gardens Exhibition, London Olympia 2003:  The Plymouth Gin Botanicals Garden.  We were commissioned by Plymouth Gin/Coates & Co, Maxxium UK and Vin & Sprit AB Sweden to create a garden to promote brand awareness, encapsulating the essence of the gin and the botanicals used in the process.

Association of Professional Landscapers Awards 2002. Joint winner, Garden under £10k

Geo Designs project in Biddenham, Bedfordshire, involved the design and creation of a unique “outdoor entertainment” courtyard. “The outdoor space has been transformed to provide an intimate usable space that provides all year interest, architectural planting, built-in barbeque, pergola, timber seating and storage, lighting and a water-feature. The contemporary design maximises the use of the space and materials have been skilfully employed to harmonise and contrast with the rest of the garden.”

Urban Gardens Exhibition, London Olympia 2002:  The New York Rooftop Garden.  Geo Designs was invited to attend the inaugural exhibition to showcase the best in garden innovation and design and created a garden with an international “City” theme.  The roof garden featured a sunken timber deck and terrace overlooking the cityscape with subtle lighting, pleached crab-apple trees and an ice sculpture water feature incorporating a single red rose as the official flower and floral emblem of the United States of America.  Awarded Best in Show.
