Garden Design School (GDS) graduate, Lynne Pemberton, has scooped a top prize in the 2007 Student of the Year Awards, a nationwide competition organised by the Society of Garden Designers (SGD). It is the second time in two years that the exceptional talent of a GDS student has been officially recognised and it means that GDS is, uniquely, the only UK college ever to produce two consecutive prizewinners. Lynne secured third place in the 2007 awards, overcoming stiff opposition from dozens of garden design students from 13 leading colleges across the country. She joins former GDS student, Kate Poore, who was placed equal first in 2006.

The prestigious SGD awards are presented annually in a competition that is open to all 400 of the Society’s student members. Each entry consists of a full presentation plan, client brief, planting plan and appropriate visuals. All entries are assessed by a panel of senior SGD Registered Members and chairman, Peter Thomas, commented this year: “The standard has been incredibly impressive. This can only bode well for the future of our growing industry.”

Lynne Pemberton’s award-winning garden came in for special praise from the judging team. They said: “This is a workable and pleasing solution for the client which responds well to the brief and would make a very nice garden to visit.”

Having completed her training at Garden Design School, north Surrey-based Lynne has now started up in business as a freelance garden designer. She can be contacted on 020 8549 8820.
