Everything is coming up roses for a local landscape company which is exhibiting at BBC Gardeners’ World Live event in Birmingham this week.

Lanwarne Landscapes, which was named Britain’s best company in the Federation of Small Businesses’ annual awards in 2014, has been selected as one of nine garden designers who will be creating Beautiful Borders at the show at the NEC from tomorrow (Thursday) to Sunday, June 16-19.

Martin Lines, who is the garden designer for the company set up in St Albans by James Lanwarne over a decade ago, was inspired by Robert Frost’s poem Fire and Ice in which he questions whether the world will end because of desire or hate.

With a central sculpture from Christian Funnell, who regularly exhibits at the Childwickbury Arts Fair, the garden uses colour, form and texture to symbolise the central themes.

The show border is being sponsored by the British Red Cross which, as a global network responding to many humanitarian crises across the world, is the inspiration for the piece.
