Classic Tier Panel System - Thin Slate


The garden was designed to celebrate the 650th anniversary of The Magistrates Association as well as being decided to their future.

Designed with the image to be as a courthouse would; set within a central and modern town, above an urban car park and backing on to the courtrooms, designed for use by the magistrates themselves. To meet these parameters, the plants were either in containers or else had shallow root balls.

Designer: Kate Gould

Kate was encouraged by her parents to garden from a young age. What started out as simple hobby grew into a successful lifelong career. Kate Gould Gardens was started in 1998 out of Kate’s bedroom. 20 years and 5 Chelsea gold medals later, Kate is one of the most sought after garden designers in London.

But she hasn’t forgotten where it all began. It’s very likely you’ll still find her with her hands in the dirt, installing the latest exquisite planting scheme she has dreamt up. It’s this warmth and approachability that gives her the ability to work along with her clients. This, coupled with her passion, experience and strength of visualisation, is a tried and tested combination that yields beautiful results every time.
