The LANDSCAPE Show is collaborating with Battersea Dogs and Cats Home to introduce a new ‘Pet Friendly Garden Competition’ at the event this year.

The introduction of the ‘Pet Friendly Garden Competition’ is the first step to encourage the creation of a friendly, attractive and safe outdoor space for animals and to promote the importance of accommodating the needs of pets.

The competition is a unique and exciting opportunity for entrants to display their creativity and design a garden space specifically catered to pets. It is open to all ages and has 3 different entry categories: Under 16s, Non-Professionals, and Professional Designers.

On the 17th and 18th of September 2019, the winning entries will be showcased at LANDSCAPE.

Peter Laurie, Deputy Chief Executive at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home says:

“Here at Battersea we’re always looking for ways to enrich our dogs experience. Our staff and volunteers work hard to create inviting green spaces at our iconic London centre in the heart of the city, and we provide advice to pet owners on how to create pet-friendly gardens for their dogs and cats. I’m really looking forward to judging the entries in the LANDSCAPE Show design competition. As more and more people look to find creative gardening solutions with limited space and resources, it will be very interesting to see how people approach this project to create a green oasis for their four-legged friends.”
