2014 Show Garden: Gardening Scotland
Gold Medal Award-Winning Garden
Early in 2014 the charity Freedom from Fistula Foundation approached garden designer Carolyn Grohmann and asked her to design a show garden at Gardening Scotland to help promote their cause.
We worked with Carolyn to create a stylish and thought-provoking garden which won us all a gold medal and allowed the charity to raise funds for much needed vehicles to be used in its operations in Africa. The garden we created was circular, allowing visitors to wander all the way round and view the garden from every angle. It incorporated a water feature using a stepped rill, the structure of which was later installed in our BALI award-winning garden at Merchiston in Edinburgh, a cedar boardwalk, two crescent moon shaped benches, two Urbis bowls planted with aquatic plants, and lush, colourful planting.
The garden was a huge success and we were delighted that almost all the materials and structures used in its creation were recycled or reused in other garden projects.
