Landscape Gardening

Description

A focus on the preparations of Tim Lancaster and Keith Chapman, the UK's landscape gardening team for WorldSkills 2007, which takes place in Japan in November.

The pair won the UK Skills selection competition, having reached the formidable standards required to make the team and to stand a chance of winning a medal. They are both in full-time employment.

Tim works for a property developer near Leeds and is given the responsibility for a landscaping scheme at an exclusive six acre property. Keith works for a small business in Yorkshire.

They travel together to Harewood House to meet the head gardener who explains the art and philosophy of a Japanese garden. It's a reconnaissance mission which they share with the UK Skills training manager, who will oversee their intensive preparations for the WorldSkills event.

Part of the series: Skills Championships
