Squire's Garden Centre works with Landform for Hampton Court

Landform Consultants will be at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show building the Squire's Garden Centres garden for the event to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Squire's.

Landform garden designer Catherine MacDonald said the design is for a practical garden for a suburban couple with grown-up children. The idea is to provide a garden with space to entertain, relax in and provide privacy.

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.

Landform has a special friendship with Squire's, as managing director Mark Gregory started his successful landscaping career at Squires as a young man.

Landform is also building a MacDonald-designed garden at Chelsea Flower Show for Hartley Botanic.

The second show garden Landform is working on is the Watahan East & West Garden for garden designers Tea Yano and Chihori Shibiyama of Watahan Design Lab. The third Chelsea show garden Landform will be building is the Chelsea Barracks Show Garden, designed by Jo Thompson and sponsored by Qatari Diar.
