After weeks of heightened suspense and anticipation, the wait is finally over as the final list of participants in the first-ever Dubai International Garden Competition have been announced. The list was unveiled at a VIP event that brought together senior representatives from the event patron Dubai Municipality, event partners and hopeful participants.

Participating companies are as follows, Mirak Irrigation & Landscaping, Toscana Landscaping & Pools, Jenny Flowers, Spring Rose Landscaping, Waho & Vogue, Miracle Garden, Terra Verde the Landscape Solution, Greenable Landscapes and Orchid Garden Center.

The Middle East’s biggest gardening showcase will be held from April 3 to 6, 2014, at The Venue, Downtown Dubai at the foot of Burj Khalifa. The event is anticipated by real estate investors looking to give their properties a makeover in time for Expo 2020, while boosting the value of their properties through stylish landscaping; as well as players in the tourism and leisure markets.

The participants include architects, botanists, designers, engineers, garden manicurists and horticulturalists among others. A recurring theme among the entries is the emphasis on eco-friendly solutions ideal for Dubai’s arid climate, balancing natural beauty with innovation.

“Our judges from the UK have reassured us that in all their years of judging competitions worldwide, these are some of the most stunning concepts they have ever encountered,” said Nasser Khan, CEO of the competition’s organiser Purelife.

“We believes that this creativity is inspired by Dubai’s reputation as a ‘City of the Impossible’ that touches the sky. Visitors will be even more astounded when these concepts are brought to life right before their eyes. Although the event is only four days long, the concepts they inspire will live on until Expo 2020 and beyond,” he added.

Engineer Taleb Jalfar, Director of Parks & Horticulture Department at Dubai Municipality, expressed his optimism about the upcoming event: “We are confident that the outstanding innovation and eco-friendliness shown by participants in the Dubai International Garden Competition will put Dubai high on the map of landscaping globally. This is not just about landscaping; it’s about encouraging tourism, family bonding and healthier lifestyles outdoors.”
