Thank you and well done to everyone that took part in the 2019 Garden Competition. We had a record number of entries and we love to see your beautiful gardens blossom bigger and better each year.

The standard was really high which made judging very difficult. The judges were:

  • Matt Pickerill, Wolverhampton Homes Neighbourhood Services
  • Keith Humphries, Continental Landscapes
  • Bill Harley, Tenant Garden Expert

Matt Pickerill said:

Some of the gardens we judged were so inspiring to see. We had over 60 entries and I had the privilege of viewing them all. It’s lovely to see so many of you taking pride in your homes and it makes such a difference walking around the local community when the garden competition is on – it really brightens up our streets! We are looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us this year as many may have turned their hand to a bit of gardening during lockdown.

Drum roll please! The finalists are listed below with some photos of their fabulous gardens.
