London – Chelsea Flower Show
The Manchester Garden 2019
The garden told the story of Manchester’s industrial past and the chances for the future. The project was done by Exterior Architecture (London) in commission by the city of Manchester.
Planting was a gentle blend of 4 different planting concepts, to serve as an example of options for a changing climate: Parkland (wild and edible), Remedial (pioneers), Suds (wetlands) and Urban. Am still very proud of what we build. My role was directing and creating the final layout of the planting, Improvising heavily onsite with plants delivered or exchanged with other gardens.

” Flowing, Sweeping and Unbroken”
Client to be was an artcollector with a small estate. Assignment was a garden to display art and the garden had to be a piece of art on its own as well. A garden to walk around in and to explore. to get lost in. I created 5 distinctly different areas where harmony was created by using an overall scheme of white, blue and copper connecting all areas.
The small rill traversing the lawn has a flow of water comming from the “forrest”, dissapearing into the meadow planting.
Each area has its own distinct character and planting concept but at the same time the larger shapes of trees and shrubs and color groups will work as an overal design aswell.
