Four of the very best young landscapers in the country, all aged under 28, form two teams, to display their high calibre skills in this tough competition. Designed to champion skills amongst young people and nurture emerging talent, the competition sees the contenders working in pairs to build two challenging Show Gardens packed with an array of landscaping elements. 

Both Show Gardens were assessed on Wednesday 13 June by the BBC Gardeners’ World Live Show Garden Assessment Panel plus two dedicated judges from the WorldSkills Assessment Panel, with Jason Botting and Laurence Senior being crowned the same day as the Young Landscapers of 2018! 

Visitors to the Show will see the results of these incredibly talented young landscapers. Plus, get a garden-load of inspiration from the wonderful Show Gardens that they have built, which will be packed with ideas, interest and inspiration for projects to try in your own garden.
