Children's play areas, natural habitats, and the feel-good benefits of gardening were all leading themes at this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show, here are some of the trends to bear in mind:
Main Avenue, home to the major show gardens, was awash with a dominant theme of green. Aside from Kate Middleton's Back to Nature garden, the most notable is the Resilience Garden designed by Sarah Eberle FSGD, which showcases the 'forests of the future' by using trees that are resilient to climate change. Andrew Duff, who designed The Savills and David Harber Garden, also chose a woodland landscape, filling it with young trees in an overgrown and fecund fashion as shown below.
When thinking plants - go green and overgrown!
Rendered walls and fences seem to be a thing of the past. If you’re looking for a new way to divide up space, you can try building a log wall, like the one in Paul Hervey-Brookes’ Art of Viking garden.
Stone walls, pebble-filled gabions and living walls were also all the rage at Chelsea.
