For a number of years now, the popular lawn mower engine manufacturer, Briggs and Stratton have held a competition to announce the best lawn in Britain.
The judges are people well known in the gardening industry and include authors of selected books.
In August 2012 Briggs and Stratton award went to Dr Ogg from Oxfordshire which is just a short drive away from us in Bedfordshire. The competition is run in conjunction with Garden News magazine.
The Garden Lawns of the year is a prestigious event and the winner can often find himself being asked to do spots on TV shows several times after being presented with a trophy.
The winner, Dr Ogg will now be on the judging panel for the 2013 panel.
