M&G chelsea 2012

m&g Investments team up with andy sturgeon for a 7th chelsea flower show

We are really excited to be working with this prestigious investment management company at Chelsea 2012.  Although our practice is well known for creating contemporary gardens we also frequently work on larger, more traditional country gardens and whether modern or classical our work frequently relies on fundamental Arts and Crafts principles.

New English Garden

This modern progression of the style is portrayed in The M&G Garden which will include repeated patterns carved into stone to echo the wallpaper prints of John Ruskin and William Morris.  The considered choice of materials feature a 30 metre long copper sculpture which ploughs through the garden like a wave of energy and a floating oak bench which links the different spaces together.

The woodland edge planting includes numerous cow parsleys, dusky iris and cottage garden cranesbill.
