Gold Medal Winner
Donegal quartzite crazy paving was used in The Wasteland Garden, designed by Kate Gould and built by her team of landscapers.
The paving was among many ‘old’ materials to which Kate gave a new lease of life through being re-worked into a modern garden that is designed for communal use.
The garden offers a sense of privacy; there are spaces to sit and relax under the canopy of trees, enveloped by small shrubs and pretty perennials, with the sound of water in the background.

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.
