Four of the very best young landscapers in the country, all aged under 28, will 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 will see the contenders working in pairs to build two challenging Show Gardens packed with an array of landscaping elements. 

Both Show Gardens will be 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 one duo will be crowned the same day as the Young Landscapers of 2018! 

Join us at the Show in June to see the results of , and support, these incredibly talented young landscapers. Plus, get a garden-load of inspiration from the wonderful Show Gardens that they have built, packed with ideas, interest and inspiration for projects to try in your own garden. Details on the designs to be announced.

How long until the call for entries closes...
