BALI members celebrate award wins at RHS Tatton Park

BALI designers, contractors and affiliate members are celebrating today after winning medals and 'Best Garden' awards at this year's RHS Flower Show Tatton Park.

BALI registered contractor Greenbelt Landscapes, which designed and built the BALI garden at last year’s show winning Silver-Gilt for the association, this year achieved Gold and the Best Back to Back Garden accolade for ‘A Quiet Corner’.

Designed by Sarah Jarman and Anna Murphy, the striking design features a curved swathe of grasses that follow a cobbled path to an enclosed seating area.

‘Reflecting Photonics’, a garden in the Year of Light category designed by BALI registered designer Helen Elks-Smith and co-designer Kate Hart, and built by BALI registered contractor Turf ‘n’ Earth, also won Gold.

This conceptual garden reflects the world-leading research into light-transmitting optical fibre and is sponsored by the University of Southampton Optoelectronics Research Centre. BALI Affiliates CED Stone, SureSet UK and Barcham Trees were amongst the product sponsors.

The Best Year of Light Garden accolade went to Gold winner ‘Light Catcher’, a garden sponsored by BALI Affiliate Marshalls Paving. The garden harnesses natural daylight to create drama and ambience by using materials chosen for their reflective, diffusive and fluctuating qualities to create a contemplative and soothing space.

In the Show Garden category, BALI registered contractor Dreamscape Gardens achieved Silver-Gilt for their garden ‘Aurora Arbour’, designed by Dreamscape’s Daniel Newby with Rob Glass.

Also achieving Silver-Gilt, and sponsored by BALI Affiliate CED Stone, is the ‘Black Pepper’ garden in the Back to Back Garden category. ‘The Cloud Nine Kitchen Garden’, sponsored by BALI affiliate Bradstone, won Silver.
