Van Leeuwen Green wish to congratulate Vivid Design principals Joby Blackman (Landscape Design background) and Carolyn Blackman (Horticultural background) on winning their 19th MIFGS Gold Award.
Vivid Design was formed in 1996. The combined influence of Joby and Carolyn ensures gardens have equal emphasis on hard landscape design and planting design. "Our approach to landscape design is always contextual – the people, the architecture and surrounding environment being the major influential factors in the finished design. Our philosophy is that the gardens we design should be unique and devoid of authorship. The subtle weaving in of history, ‘stories’ or other more personal elements is also a particular design influence."
Hendrik and the staff at Van Leeuwen Green look forward to implementing more of their outstanding designs in the future.
