Come April, masterpiece gardens of the world’s top gardening innovators will bloom at the foot of the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa.

The ‘best of the best’ creations of top-rated landscaping companies will now battle it out in the first-ever Dubai International Garden Competition (DIGC) at Emaar’s The Venue on Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, from April 3 to 6.

After years of non-stop dedication and thousands of hours spent designing and perfecting their masterpieces, the finalists are going toe-to-toe in a massive audition to impress world-renowned judges with their creations, the organisers said. The competition which is also open for the public to attend is held under the patronage of Dubai Municipality, with Strategic Sponsorship from Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing.

The public is particularly encouraged to come and enjoy a magnificent family outing in a spectacular setting surrounded by natural beauty and serenity. To ensure that children don’t miss out on this wonderland, Fun City the Official Fun partner, will be enabling parents to roam the stalls with full peace of mind.

The dazzling attractions include the sensational Lokrit Garden Village, Grand Floral Arena Stall, Raffle Draws, the Education Zone and Talks, Furniture Display, Best of Show Award and a Food Court to recharge the visitors’ energy levels.

The participating companies are: Mirak Irrigation and Landscaping, Toscana Landscaping and Pools, Jenny Flowers, Spring Rose Landscaping, WAHO landscape Architects, Vogue Landscape, Miracle Garden, Terra Verde the Landscape Solution, Greenable Landscapes, Orchid Garden Centre, Akar Landscaping and Lokrit Garden Village.

Nasser Khan, CEO of the organisers Purelife Events, Exhibitions and Conferences said: “We expect over 20,000 visitors per day, but we will touch the lives of thousands more who will move into properties with gardens inspired by these designs. Therefore April 6 is not the end of this adventure, but only the beginning of an exciting new green era.”
