Mr. Chitsanucha Rattanawong, representative of the “Prai Fon” team that received first place in the higher education category said that concept behind the design was to continue King Rama IX’s royal projects while transitioning to King Rama X’s reign. His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun is like a candle flame that brightens the heart of Thai people. Lights were used as part of the design of the small garden and excess scrap was applied to increase cost efficiency and sufficiency. The highlight of the garden design was the number one symbol in Thai numerals, in which lighting shined from the back of the symbol, symbolizing King Rama X’s first year of accession to the throne. Furthermore, the main tree in the garden is a white cheesewood tree, while the white cheesewood bush provides a shade. The second type of tree is the butterfly palm tree, which complements the yellow color scheme, representing King Rama X’s main color. The small garden was also decorated with white, pink, and yellow orchids.

Moreover, Mr. Kwanchai Klanprasit, representative of the “Frung Fring King Kong Kaew” team that received first place in the general public category for the small garden design to commemorate His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun’s accession to the throne as King Rama X said that the concept behind the design of “My Gift to His Majesty” was that His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun’s accession to the throne brought happiness and delight to the Thai people. 100% orchids were used to decorate the small garden. A variety of orchid genus’s such as Vanda orchids, Sonia orchids, Oncidium orchids, Ascocentrum orchids, and Cattleya orchids were used, with emphasis on purplish-pink, orange, and yellow. The color of Vanda orchids, which is purplish-pink, is also the main color of RMUTT’s Landscape Technology program. The structure and style of the small garden design trends towards a vintage style. Furthermore, there are stairs that lead up to the second floor, which also has a balcony, much like a countryside house. 10 baht and 2 baht coins, as well as 25 baht satang, 50 baht satang, and 75 baht satang coins, which contain an image of King Rama IX, were used to create the 10 symbol in Thai numerals, representing the continuation of King Rama IX’s royal projects. Also, every coin was intended to convey what King Rama IX and King Rama X meant to the Thai people.
