Lovania’s first-time show garden ‘Outdoor Inspiration’ took a trolleyload of trophies home from the Southport Flower Show 2016. Held at Victoria Park, Southport from 18-21 August 2016, the Southport Flower Show is a key event in the horticultural calendar.
The design was awarded Gold plus the event’s esteemed Finchett and Brian Aughton Trophies for “Best Use of Plants in a Display”. All this plus an Award of Excellence, too.
The 3-level garden was designed with the family at its core, much like the Lovania Nurseries business itself. The garden’s key features were:
- Children’s entertaining, bug hotels, sandpits, grow your own and miniature fairy gardens
- Adults rooftop garden made out of recycled pallets
- Three different levels sunken garden, snug room and roof top
- Flower tunnel
- Alfresco family dining
- Two Green living walls
- Portable modular building blocks based on a logo theme
A hearty thanks to Rick McKeever who designed the garden and to the whole Lovania team who got involved in its creation.
