Work by KLC garden design graduates features at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower show

The RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower is hosting several KLC School of Design's graduates and students.
Summer Garden, Four Corners has been designed by KLC Garden Design Diploma Graduate Peter Reader, who won the Student Design and Build Award run and sponsored by Provender Nurseries in association with the RHS.

His garden design entitled 'Four Corners' was considered to be the most innovative design in satisfying the client's brief.

The style of his garden is structured around the Persian Chahar Bagh 'fourfold garden', with the garden being divided symmetrically using four rills. Like the Chahar Bagh gardens, it juxtaposes the formal design structure against soft planting and build materials.

The Ecover Show Garden is designed by KLC Garden Design Diploma Graduate Matthew Childs.

Summer Garden: August 1963 - I Have a Dream is designed by KLC Garden Design Diploma Graduate Stephen Ryan

In the Escape Zone: RHS Bee Garden, KLC Garden Design Diploma Graduate Rachel Parker Soden  has designed a haven for pollinators.
Conceptual Garden: I Disappear by KLC Open Learning Garden Design Student Arek Luc was inspired by a Metallica song of the same name.

The themes emphasise how by producing our own crops, we can be self-supporting, besides contributing to purifying the atmosphere and drawing attention to the continued loss of allotment land for building.
