Our garden at the Hampton Court show, called ‘Sustainability Can be Sexy’, was intended for a family with young children with an emphasis on sustainability and practicality – to incorporate renewable energy and to use recycled products wherever possible.

Brief:

The garden, called “Sustainability Can be Sexy”, was intended for a family with young children with an emphasis on sustainability and practicality – to incorporate renewable energy and to use recycled products wherever possible.

This is the site we were given on which to build our garden.

However, the brief was to achieve a contemporary feel and not the ‘Heath Robinson’ effect often associated with eco-friendly gardens.

We ensured there were opportunities for play, entertaining and relaxation. The garden was fairly low-maintenance but with good year-round interest and giving the opportunity to grow a few vegetables. There was also scope for composting and water saving.

Planting:

Helen Ellison, our garden designer, carefully selected the plant scheme for this Garden Design, each individual plant compliments the last, and the colours draw your eye effortlessly.

The Hobbit House:

The Hobbit House was a favourite part of the design for us. The exterior turfing and the Silver Birch decoration made it look like a hill, the skylight roof allowed light to enter the solid structure and turned it into a great playhouse for the kids and grown ups alike!

Imagine having this feature in your own garden! A fabulous pass time for the family, and a great talking point!
