Professor David Stevens the head judge for the competition reviewed the garden :-

“Small gardens can be a challenge – microscopic plots are nearly impossible. So, what can you do with a sloping yard where you can virtually touch all the boundaries with arms outstretched? The answer is a horticultural potted paradise with a split – level garden, background music and plants to die for. Add to this artificial rock that is better than the real thing, a wildlife pond and carefully chosen statuary and you have something better than special. Ferns, clipped box, and Hostas make up just part of the plant palette.”
