4th Annual Jacksons Show Gardens Competition

Hi Everyone - thanks to all of you who have registered your interest.

The 4th Annual Jacksons Show Gardens Competition is up and really running now. We emailed out the competition brief packs - well a link to download all the info from dropbox to everyone who has registered their interest yesterday evening.  Interestingly this was on exactly the same date last year -  11th Feb.
Here's the link for anyone who is interested:

The closing date for entries is 20th March, so a day after the closing date last year.  I'm sure you will all appreciate the extra day!

This year we wanted to do something a bit different, as we'd followed pretty much the same formula for the last 3 years. So we have 3 distinctly different design challenges for those entering. 

 We also have some other companies involved, this is something that has happened quite naturally; we are delighted to announce that images of our timber fencing, gates and garden products have been developed in Vectorworks image library.  Vectorworks as I’m sure you all know is the market leading software used by many garden designers and landscape architects.  Having our images in their library is great as this enables Vectorworks users to easily import and integrate (in my humble opinion) some of the best looking fencing and garden products ready made into their designs. It seemed obvious that a way of bringing this to designers and landscape architects attention was to involve Nemetschek Vectorworks as a sponsor for one of the show gardens.

The other partner is Whitefriars.  We worked very successfully together last year on a project in Canterbury, which we called the Zone.  This year weve been invited to work with them again, although we've upped the ante somewhat this year.

Now that people are looking at the brief packs I have received a few emails, calling for clarification on some points that seem a little wooly to them - it's probably the way it is written, things can make perfect sense in one's own head when you read things back!  so I will put some of the queries questions and answers here to hopefully other people I may have confused!  But that will be a bit later on...
