Home Solutions from John Lewis at BBC Gardeners’ World Live

Show Garden Press Release - June 2019

Home Solutions by John Lewis, which provides customers with local tradespeople for a variety of home improvement and maintenance jobs, has created for the first time, a Show Garden at BBC Gardeners’ World Live 2019. 

Designed by a Waitrose Partner and built by Home Solutions trade professionals, the garden will be available to view at Stand GA6 at the NEC Birmingham from 13-16 June.

The plants and trees in the garden are from Longstock Park Nursery which is part of the Waitrose & Partners Leckford Estate, the only UK farm owned by a retailer. The outdoor studio and furniture is from John Lewis & Partners and the garden was built by landscapers from Home Solutions. 

The garden celebrates Home Solutions from John Lewis’ new partnership with the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL). The APL is the leading accreditation company for landscapers in the UK.  All landscapers and gardeners that work for Home Solutions from John Lewis are accredited by the APL. 

Shaun Beale, Partner & Manager, Longstock Park Garden Design & Landscaping, who designed the garden, said: “We wanted the Home Solutions by John Lewis garden to be an inspirational space that visitors will relate to. If you have a passion for plants, this is a great opportunity to meet our experts and plan an outdoor space that works for gardens of all shapes and sizes. 

“Our aim was to make the design versatile, to show visitors what can be achieved in a small garden. There is a combination of formal and informal soft landscaping, a garden office and wonderful structural hedging. We feel the garden proudly displays Home Solutions’ unfaltering dedication to quality and customer service.”

The landscapers and gardeners from Home Solutions from John Lewis help customers with a range of gardening jobs, from lawn mowing and laying turf, right up to a complete garden design and build. All the gardeners who work with Home Solutions from John Lewis go through a rigorous vetting process, including inspection of their previous works. 

John Cotter, Head of Home Solutions from John Lewis said: “If you’re undertaking a job which involves building, redesign or renovating, it’s important to use a professional you can trust. We make sure all our landscapers meet impeccable standards so you can be assured that your project is in the best hands possible. 

“We are thrilled to showcase Home Solutions for the first time in a consumer show environment. Since launching in 2017, Home Solutions has been a huge success. We are available in eight counties and we are about to expand to four more so the service is available in even more locations.”
