Leading UK turf care and sports equipment suppliers Sherriff Amenity, has announced that it will once again be holding the BASIS Foundation Award in Amenity and Horticulture at BTME 2015. The company will also be showcasing a new online Turf Report and Education Platform on stand B34.

The BASIS Foundation Award in Amenity and Horticulture has been a resounding success at the exhibition over recent years with an impressive pass rate. This is set to continue at BTME 2015, with Sherriff Amenity committed to raising the knowledge of pesticides among professional users.

A three-day course is conducted by the STRI’s Head of Research Dr Ruth Mann, which serves as preparation for the final exam to be held in Harrogate during the exhibition. With support from Bayer and Everris, the award is undertaken by a wide variety of professionals including candidates from golf clubs and other landscape and amenity organisations.

Commenting on the importance of education at an industry trade show like BTME, Sherriff Amenity’s Marketing Manager Kevin Whitby said: “We see this as a practical way of promoting a professional understanding of pesticides. It is important to support education within the industry as well as also helping to support education at the show.”

As well as playing a vital role in the education programme, Sherriff Amenity’s experienced staff will be out in force on stand B34, providing invaluable advice to greenkeepers, course managers and turf professionals. With an extensive range of fertilisers, chemicals, grass seed, dressings, sprayers and golf course equipment, Sherriff Amenity has the perfect solution to achieve tees, greens and fairways of the highest standard.

Why this Garden Works

Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.
