The four lucky finalists will be given a space to build their design at the London show in 2016. Applications should include a visual, as well as a plan of your design, a description of the garden, how your design fits the brief and a short paragraph about you.

Last year, Marc O'Neill was crowned Winner of the Grand Designs Live Garden Designer of the Year. With a family heritage of the creative arts and design and plantsmanship, Marc has been making the transition from a successful 20 year career as a Fashion Designer into the field of Garden Design, studying at Hampton Court Palace with respected industry experts KLC.

The judges were won over by his design, with James Alexander Sinclair stating "Marc’s garden was very accomplished with an impressive green wall and a well-balanced design with lots of interest for both children and adults.”
