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, Orchid Garden Centre.
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.
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."
The organizers have expressed their appreciation to the event's generous supporters, companies include Dubai Municipality, Emaar, Dubai Tourism Commercial Marketing, Dubai Calendar, DEWA, Danube Buildmart and Al Baddad.
