Using SketchUp to express yourself at this year's BBC Gardener's World Live 2022

Using SketchUp to express yourself at this year's BBC Gardener's World Live 2022

A few months ago we featured Carly Tong Garden Design as a SketchUp user case study. Carly has since been chosen to exhibit a show border at this year's BBC Gardeners' World Live 16th-19th June 2022, at the NEC Birmingham. Carly's 'Beautiful Border' has been generously sponsored by our friends SketchUp UK in association with Cadsoft Solutions Limited and we couldn't be more pleased to be involved in supporting Carly.

BBC Gardeners' Live 2022 Beautiful Borders

Titled ‘Express Yourself’ the theme of Carly's border is ‘Wild Life’. This garden injects Wild Life into its core through its vibrant colour palette of  bee-friendly flowering plants. Carly's border is beautifully illustrated below in 3D using SketchUp. 


"I have found (SketchUp) extremely versatile to present my ideas to clients from concept sketches through to presenting final visualisations."



"I use Sketchup alongside my hand drawings. I love the way you can start with shapes in 2D and when modelled in 3D the design can be shown in simple terms before the rendering stage begins. I am able to use Sketchup for 2D & 3D without the use of other CAD software, making it good value for money." Carly Tong Garden Design



SketchUp UK and Cadsoft Solutions Limited will be on-hand to demonstrate SketchUp to exhibition visitors. Located next to Carly's show border, the team will be available to answer any SketchUp related questions as well as walking through some of SketchUp's key features and why it is the ideal design solution for garden and landscape designers!
