The LG Smart Garden is designed by landscape architect Hay Joung Hwang. It is being built by Randle Siddeley - where Hwang formerly worked as a landscape architect before striking out on her own with her company Hay.Design.
It will blend technology and horticulture, with LG's thinnest-ever television showing floral content, as well as a smartphone that controls the lighting and irrigation in the garden via an app called WeMo, which visitors will be able to try out during the show.
The garden also features a water feature centrepiece made of Accoya - a modified wood developed by Accsys Technologies which can withstand the wettest conditions. It claims to be more durable than hardwood and lasts at least 50 years when used above ground, with minimal swelling and shrinkage.
Hwang has taken inspiration from Scandinavian and Oriental culture for the planting and structure of the garden. A cantilevered pergola will form the centrepiece, with flowers including including Iris 'Beverly Sills', Iris 'Jane Phillips', Digitalis 'Glory of Roundway' and Persicaria bistorta 'Superba' bringing colour to the garden.
Hwang said: "This is my first garden for the Chelsea Flower Show and my first ever garden design which relies on technology to monitor the garden's well-being. I have always believed that we can gain so much more from our homes than just warmth and shelter. This garden re-imagines the future of our home space and how technology can assist in merging these areas in a meaningful and complementary way."
Andrew Mackay, chief operating officer at LG Electronics UK, said: "We are delighted to be part of RHS Chelsea Flower Show and show how LG technology can seamlessly integrate into our lives to connect the garden and the home."
