Manchester based Lynn Cordall who re-trained as a garden designer after a career in fashion, has created a city centre garden imagined as a space for a retiring couple who enjoy the countryside.

With planting that aims to attract wildlife into their urban dwelling all year round, the garden features stinging nettles, Urtica dioica, essential food for the caterpillars of red admiral, painted lady, comma and tortoiseshell butterflies.

The Greener Front Garden also featured sustainable solutions such as permeable surfaces to help with water run-off during heavy downpours and a rain chain that flows into a small pond that can provide watering to the adjacent planting beds.

The garden also won the Best Construction for a Garden trophy.

And another Gold

Splendid lilies
Might big flies in Cheshire
Dry stone walling courses
