Thatch and Gardens Picture Competition

We are pleased to launch our “Thatch and Gardens Picture Competition”

After such wonderful weather this summer  and we have noticed a lot of gorgeous gardens which, with thatched buildings, look fabulous so it was an easy choice for our next picture competition.   It may be a lovely flower (and thatch), lots of flowers (and thatch), a vegetable patch (and thatch) or what about a garden with a thatched building or even a garden with a thatched bird table! …… there are so many options.

This idea came from our successful Thatch Finial Fun Picture competition and the rules are almost the same, except for the judging and end date!   See below.

How to enter

Easy to enter, just email us ( up to 4 lovely pictures which include a garden and thatch.  Don’t forget to include your contact details.


One of the Thatch Advice Centre aims is to promote thatch.  Pictures of beautiful thatch and gardens is a great way to do it.  We will probably do a gallery, as we did with the finials.  Then everyone’s pictures can be showcased and those who want to be credited have the added opportunity to be promoted.  E.g. if you are a thatcher, gardener, photographer or just a happy snapper!

We may use any pictures entered but rest assured they will be copyrighted by us and credited to you, if you wish.  This gives you the opportunity to promote your business, your master thatcher, your photography or just yourself.
