Rae Wilkinson Design, Living Landscapes and Chaircreative created a soothing HUG at RHS Flower Show 2015

RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2015 - Silver Gilt 

Living Landscapes Healing Urban Garden showed how a green space in an urban setting can be wonderfully soothing and restorative.
Pooling our design and build talents, the HUG team successfully created a soothing, sculptural, urban garden space. The crowds loved the colour and feel of the space and the focal bench brought the intended wow factor.
Planting was low maintenance, evergreen and predominantly herbs, providing a scented and naturalistic vibe to the space with hues of silver and blue.
The HUG bench was lovingly created using sectional high grade oak which was carved and bleached, and set on custom cast white concrete feet. Its a piece of sculpture, a wonderful seat and a statement piece for any garden space.*
Urbis supplied a Lily water bowl and three of their new style Olive Pots for display in the garden, which added to the urban feel.
The cool and low maintenance Kota blue limestone plank paving was supplied to us bespoke from London Stone Paving.
A light Meadowgrass Marble gravel from CED connected the paving to the planting beautifully.
