Mateus rose show garden

Sponsored by Mateus Rosé, this garden was made for BBC Gardeners’ World Live at the NEC. Our brief for The Mateus Alfresco Garden was to create a "Typical English Garden for Entertaining & Outdoor Dining" As such, we created two linked circular areas, one for eating and entertaining and one for quiet after dinner relaxation.

Distinctive rustic reclaimed granite setts are used in curves to produce soft fluid shapes. This is further softened by a wild and relaxed planting style using ferns, grasses and subtle pink and white flowers such as foxgloves.

Lighting the way along a cobbled path are unusual bespoke garden lamps made from Elm wood trunks with rosé coloured glass lenses. This was our first show garden for which we won a bronze RHS medal.
