Show Garden – RHS Silver Gilt Award
Awarded an RHS Silver-Gilt at RHS Malvern Spring flower show, 'Return to the Med’ is a small garden which really makes use of it's space. The garden was designed for a young couple working in the creative arts, keen naturalists and travellers.
A Mediterranean themed garden was created, with seating area, raised beds and a water spout and rill. Plants with a preference for a Mediterranean climate were mixed in a palette of yellows, pinks, blues and violets. Evergreen structural plants such as taxus columns and balls with their European influence soften the hard landscaping. A pebbled path, edging to the walls and a feature mosiac wall bring artistic character to the garden, and a source of creative inspiration.
