The Industrial Evolution Garden, Sandringham Flower Show 2010
After the success of Fen Bens Garden in 2008, the Sandringham Flower show committee then headed by Paul Murrel asked if we would consider building a show garden in the prestigious Royal Marquee. Marshalls Toyota of Kings Lynn was the main sponsor of the garden. The garden drew inspiration from the Industrial Revolution using recycled materials from the period mixed with contemporary design ideas, black represented Coal and Oil, whilst the Red and Oranges represented smelting steel and fire. Water for making steam was represented by the pool and the overshot water feature represented the channels feeding water to the steam engines that forged the Industrial Revolution.
Again the planting design that was chosen allowed those plants to be used that could not at the Chelsea Flower Show, Grasses provided height and filled out the Dahlias, the Orange Geum and Achillea whilst the Purple foliage of Heuchara vilosa Palace Purple complemented the purple foliage of Bishop of Llandaff. The planting was intentional kept low to allow people to view across the garden as only one side was open for viewing.
The garden was awarded a Large Gold Medal.
Turn Your Dream Into A Reality
Gardens are never finished they change with the seasons and plants continue to grow and change. A garden design will provide you with the ultimate concept to work towards, however not all gardens can be afforded in one go, so to complete the final garden may take several years, this will be dependent on your budget and time frame.
It is, however, possible to have a garden designed so that it can be built by the contractor in phases. In this way, a section can be completed and enjoyed, whilst the next phase is completed sometime in the near future.
