RHS Flower Show - Tatton Park 2011

 

 This year we have helped out two fantastic landscape designers - sourcing paving and landscaping products and installing their designs. As a Marshalls Registered Member we asked Marshalls to sponsor us to help carry out this task and they kindly agreed.

 

Sally Parkinson  - "A Breath of Fresh Air - Bronze Award

Sally Parkinson at Gardens and Spaces designed this garden to raise awareness of respiratory disease in the Northwest. The design incorporates a variety of low-allergen plants that showcase texture, structure, and rhythm. This garden was designed to be enjoyed by those with respiratory conditions or allergies.

We have installed a spherical theme representing bubbles of air runs through the garden, linking the hard landscaping with the planting. Using inspiration from the charity’s logo, the path and deck area create a naturalistic shape and a space in which to relax.

The colour palette of green, white and blue creates a relaxed environment and creates a contemporary feel with bright, clean white surfaces, a raised pool with mist makers and a swathe of blue glass mulch.

  

Sue Beeseley - "Grasses with Grace"  - Gold Award

Sue Beeseley at Bluebell cottage gardens has designed this garden to highlight some of the finest and most graceful early flowering ornamental grasses, in the setting of a large oval border planted with complementary herbaceous perennials. We have installed a cobblestone path running through the garden joining the two sides of the garden together. A simple curved bench, made from elm from Blue Bell Cottage's own managed woodland, offers the time to sit and enjoy the scene.
