RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014

RBC Waterscape Garden

 

Award: Gold Medal

Designed by: Hugo Bugg

Built by: Himalayan Landscaping, Landscape Associates

Sponsored by: Royal Bank of Canada

 

Sustainable, symbolic and sophisticated, this garden reflects global water issues while demonstrating practical solutions to common problems for home gardeners and commercial landscapes.

 

The design shows how water management features that occur in the natural world can be replicated in bold and innovative ways. Mimicking the watershed, water is directed through the garden at different gradients and speeds. The design is layered with naturally-occurring geometric patterns, drawing inspiration from the parched effects caused by extreme global weather. The resulting angles expose and conceal sections of the garden, encouraging further exploration.
