A modern Georgian garden

A modern interpretation of a Georgian garden, this design transforms the grounds of Cambridge Cottage at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. The design emphasises and plays with two major themes of Georgian landscape and garden design: views and (in)formality.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show - The Perennial Lifeline Garden

We’re proud to be exhibiting a garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019, The Perennial Lifeline Garden. The garden will be located in the centre of the Great Pavilion and will be a walk-through exhibit open for the public to explore. We’ve designed the garden for horticultural charity, Perennial, in collaboration with fellow LCGD graduate Duncan Cargill.

The design features a classical rose garden reimagined through modern planting design as a more sustainable and low maintenance ‘rose meadow’. Alongside this, freestanding metal screens, stone and topiary columns, and a pair of modern ‘fountains’ combine in a modern reimagining of a classical colonnade. Multi-stem trees add their sculptural form, helping to frame views through the space.
