The Royal Horticulture Society (RHS) and the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) have selected Hambrooks to build a garden for the annual RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July for their ‘Your Garden Your Budget’ project.

Landscapers across the UK are invited to submit designs and this is the third year that the RHS and APL have jointly sponsored this project that features four categories of gardens as part of a scheme to bring to the general public’s attention what can be achieved within particular budgets.

Hambrooks Garden Designer Stuart Towner, created the winning design called ‘Halo’, which was selected for the £13k budget category. The Mediterranean themed garden with arid planting, traditional crazy paving and paths is based on the imagery of a classic Greek island with a contemporary interpretation of the Greek Orthodox Church. A small courtyard garden that is almost theatrical in style, it is primarily for entertaining. Stuart Towner who is a student member of the revered Society of Garden Designers, is currently studying part-time for a BA in Garden Design at Greenwich University and his idea materialised from a concept that takes in the natural harmony of the Greek landscape and creates a modern interpretation of the classic Greek style that has been around for thousands of years.

Managing Director Norman Hambrook said, “This idea of presenting gardens to visitors at the prestigious Hampton Palace Court Flower Show that are within a certain budget is an excellent way of demonstrating the fact you don’t have to spend a fortune on gardens to have something really quite spectacular – you just need great garden design!”

The RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2014 is being held from the 8th- 13th July.
