First timer at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Hay Joung Hwang, is designing ‘The LG Smart Garden’, situated at the top of Main Avenue. Originally from Korea, Hay moved to the UK in 2006 where she completed various courses including interior design and floristry before training as a landscape architect at Sheffield University.
After designing award-winning show gardens at both the Chaumont-sur-Loire International Garden Festival and the 2015 Korean Garden Show, Hay decided to apply for the world-famous event, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
With a design packed full of technology, Hay felt the companies she could approach for sponsorship was limited. However, after several meetings, she finalised a deal with LG Electronics, who will be supplying all the ‘smart’ elements to the garden.
