Inspiration from RHS Hampton Court Flower Show – Part 2

I’ve been out planting today and it was pretty hot despite the fact that the garden has quite a bit of shade.  I was thinking how hot it must have been at Hampton Court today…I bet there are a few burnt bodies this evening!

So the medals were announced for the show gardens this morning and I was delighted to read that A Cool Garden won Best Summer Garden because this was my favourite garden at the show.

I’m featuring this garden today.  I loved everything about it from the curved stone walls, to the ornate gate at the end and the corten steel water feature which was gorgeous.

The main central pathway included a structural glass panel, which you see in the picture above – it looks like water here and I love the way it reflects the light.

A Cool Garden was designed by Ruth Marshall and sponsored by Cool Gardens Landscaping who also built it.  The garden represents a courtyard for a new spa building in a a large rural estate.  It provides a private and restful space for the family to enjoy.

Huge congratulations to all the medal winners at the show.  I’ll be featuring some more inspiring show gardens tomorrow.
