This is the last garden from the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show which I’ll be featuring on Flowerona this year. It’s called ‘A Room with a View’.
And I loved it. Not only the beautiful purple and white planting, and use of natural materials…but also the whole concept of framing the view.
Many congratulations to Mike Harvey of Arun Landscapes who designed the garden, which was awarded a Gold Medal.
The garden was in the Low Cost High Impact category and was built on a budget of £15,000.
The owners of the garden have had a kitchen extension and to save money, instead of removing the soil which had been excavated for the building work, they used it to lift the garden towards the new sleeper deck viewing platform.
And what a wonderful place it would be to spend an evening, with a cold glass of wine, enjoying the view…
