The Judges Neil Richardson, Shona Grundy, Vaughan Rowsell and Dan Khan felt that Garden Genie had great execution with a very nice and polished app, did a great job on the pitch, clear and not flustered. Neil also commented that the team had a nice balance set of skills on the team with great internal consistency.
