Landform managing director Mark Gregory said he wants to bring home a gold medal at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, where Landform is designing Squire's garden and the service will be launched.

The landscape design and build company is to provide a design service for Squire’s customers, starting with a trial at Squire’s Twickenham garden centre as a collaboration between the two companies.

Mark Gregory said he went back a long way with Squire’s, having begun his landscaping career at the company.

Landform is building the Squire's Garden Centres garden for the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show to celebrate Squire's 80th anniversary.

Landform garden designer Catherine MacDonald said the design is for a practical garden for a suburban couple with grown-up children.

The soft planting will be in Squires’ trademark colours, reds and golds with white, and the hard landscaping will give "some nods" to Squire’s past.

Squire's was founded in 1935 by David Squire and now incorporates 15 garden centres.

As sponsors of the Royal Kitchen Garden at Hampton Court Palace, Squire’s Garden Centres are offering a guided tour of the gardens at Hampton Court, followed by an exclusive planting experience in the Royal Kitchen Garden.

Anthony Boulding, Hampton Court Palace’s horticultural manager will give a guided tour of the gardens, including the East Front, Long Water, The Privy Garden and the Great Vine.

Participants will then have the opportunity to work in the Royal Kitchen Garden on 16-17 June for £45.

Landform is also working on the Hartley Botanic Trade stand and the John Ward/Tom Massey-designed UNHCR ‘Border Control’ garden at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.
