The overall winner of the competition this year has been on the winners list for the last three years. Andrew Wain, head gardener at Euridge Manor, took first place with his lawn striped pattern featuring a message to the NHS.
In second place was Edward Aitken, whose lawn offered a mix of swirls, lines and the shape of a tree. Third place was taken by William Axmacher, who mowed the stars and stripes onto his lawn.
The judging this year was done by Edgbaston Cricket Ground’s head groundsman Gary Barwell. Gary said: ”The standard was truly outstanding and the time and work that was put into these was on another level it was so difficult to decide but the winner showed craft, flair, knowledge and relevance.”
Competition entries came in from countries including Denmark, Australia, Belgium, France and Sweden. The winning prize is an Allett Liberty 43 battery powered cylinder mower as well as an Allett Complete Lawn Care System of six interchangeable cartridges.
