Chelsea Barracks Garden, RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016

A public garden

Gold medal-winning show garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Meticulously researching this garden on behalf of the client, our discovery that one of London’s lost rivers ran under this part of Chelsea, inspired the dramatic yet restful water feature in the form of a majestic water wall flowing into an undulating rill which then flows through the garden. Combining perfectly with exquisite planting and bespoke seating areas, the communal garden provides a relaxing and beautiful recreational space.

This garden was relocated to the Royal British Legion Industries village, where it provides a welcoming communal space for residents and visitors. Thought-provoking sculptures were commissioned from Barbara Myers. The benches were our third collaboration with Gareth Neal.
