Bowles & Wyer Contracts are the landscape contracts division of landscape architects and garden designers Bowles & Wyer.

It is the first time the company have been involved in the a Chelsea show, although director Dan Riddleston had 12 years experience of medal-winning Chelsea gardens before joining the firm in 2006.

The garden, which incorporated a granite-edged, natural swimming pool and glass-topped circular pavilion, was a complex build but Riddleston said coordination and handling of the build logistics helped achieved the medal.

Designer Tom Hoblyn said:

"Bowles & Wyer Contracts came highly recommended by several long-standing Chelsea contemporaries and they certainly lived up to their reputation. The build process went really smoothly and the final result – as our Silver-Gilt  medal demonstrates - was excellent.  It is all thanks to the thorough organisation and the vast experience that Bowles & Wyer Contracts bought to the job"
