Design & Win!

The Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust, the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and LANDSCAPE – The Industry Trade Show are thrilled to announce the launch of the Wildlife Friendly Garden Design in a Pot Competition!

The Wildlife Friendly Garden Design in a Pot Competition invites talented designers from all walks of life to submit their innovative and environmentally conscious garden designs that can be realised in a pot.

Design & Win!

Design & Win!

By that we mean using planters, window boxes or containers. Making space for nature in an urban environment where natural features are scarce. We are looking for creative and practical ideas that can inspire people to create their own, using features from your design. This exciting challenge not only showcases the endless possibilities of compact garden design but also encourages participants to prioritise wildlife conservation in their creations. By creating spaces that harmoniously coexist with nature, these designs will serve as inspiring examples of sustainable landscaping.

The winning professional designer will have the exclusive chance to see their imaginative creation become a reality at Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust’s Centre of the Earth education centre in Birmingham!

The competition will culminate at LANDSCAPE 2023 at the NEC on the 27 th & 28 th of September, where the winning designs will be prominently showcased. The display will allow attendees to appreciate the creativity, craftsmanship and eco-consciousness of the designers, while providing a platform for winners to gain recognition. Birmingham & Black Country Wildlife Trust, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and LANDSCAPE 2023 warmly invite all talented designers to participate.

Whether you are an experienced professional of a design enthusiast, the competition has two categories – professional and non-professional. We encourage everyone to mark their calendars and attend LANDSCAPE 2023 in September to celebrate the ingenuity and dedication of the participants.
