Four 'Your Garden, Your Budget' gardens are being created with the help of the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) - one for each of the £7,000, £10,000, £13,000 and £15,000 price brackets - for the show which runs from July 8 to 13.
Chew Valley Trees has designed Green is the Colour, a garden inspired by Canadian woodlands and forests for a budget of £7,000. The design focuses on common requests by small garden clients - screening, privacy and low-maintenance. The planting scheme will combine shades of green foliage while a variety of closely planted evergreen trees create a textural backdrop to the garden.
The £10,000 offering is called the Bacchus Garden. Blousy blooms will fill the curvaceous wineglass-inspired space providing a sense of abundance, while overflowing tiered pools will represent a continuous flow of wine. The garden provides a secluded area for relaxing and entertaining guests while enjoying being outdoors and connecting with nature.
Stuart Charles Towner has designed a Mediterranean garden based on the imagery of a Greek island for a £13,000 budget. Halo features a steel blue ‘halo' structure which references a Greek Orthodox church dome.
And top of the budget range is Alexandra Froggatt's Garden of Solitude which has relaxation and contemplation at its core. It features a sheltered seating area and reflective pool and waterfall given extra privacy by the use of sculpture, raised borders and trees. Soft, ambient lighting will stream through recycled glass panels on the wall painted in white and pastel colours.
It is the third year that the APL has been involved in creating accessible gardens at the show. Chairman Mark Gregory said: "It's really important to represent real gardens with realistic budgets. The four gardens are really strong and the public really relate to these sort of gardens. For many visitors they are believable and not frightening and they have become one of the main public highlights of the Hampton Court Flower Show."
