Finally, what's the connection between one of landscape architecture's most prestigious awards and has-been comedian Bobby Davro? Bizarrely, the second-rate funnyman was the host at the New Homes Garden Awards last Wednesday. The bewildered crowd sat agog as Davro fired off reams of bawdy seaside jokes before mimicking legends of song including Shirley Bassey and Frank Sinatra. A truly strange affair, the only highlight was the Gold Medal Award to Scape Design for its garden scheme at Squire & Partners' The Knightsbridge development.
