The sites are complimentary based on the submission and approval by the Show Organisers of a Landscape Design Plan. If an application for a site is approved by the Show Organisers a site visit is required to select a suitable site before confirmation of the booking can be made.
The costs involved with the design and construction of the Landscape Show Garden are borne by the exhibitor.
