A former lawyer turned landscape gardener is bringing his Christian faith strongly into his work: designing gardens that show God's love for the people he created ...

Jason Loh (right), who gave up a thriving career to study landscape design and who now runs a successful garden design business, has been invited by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to exhibit at the prestigious BBC Gardener's World Live (GWL) being held at the NEC Birmingham from 12-15 June.
 
Jason seeks to designs gardens that convey God's love for humanity and give people a taste of heaven on earth. 

He says: "People might think it strange for someone to give up a career as a lawyer to become a gardener but I know I made the right decision. It's a great feeling to design a garden where people can go and relax, meditate and be soothed and uplifted by being in beautiful surroundings. I try, in all my designs to showcase the beauty of the natural world and, I believe in doing so I play a part in showcasing God's beautiful creation."
 
The garden Jason has created to exhibit at BBC GWL is called The Journey, and he is keen for members of the Christian community to come and view it. 

"Gardens are a great place for people to experience a piece of heaven on earth, enjoy some peace as well as reflect on life," he explains. " I believe that visiting The Journey will inspire people do that."
 
All the gardens exhibited at BBC GWL are up for public vote to find out which garden visitors to the GWL liked the best. Jason, already a recipient of a number of awards, including Gold & Silver Gilt awards at the 2012 Harrogate Flower Show is hoping that The Journey brings another his way.
