Best New Show Garden
Emperor Classic Porcelain Paving - Vistum
Together with the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI),designer Lynn Hill created ‘The Tangible Garden’, a garden designed to exemplify low-maintenance, modern living at its best, representing how an outdoor area can be designed and used for dining and entertaining.
Using Emperor Porcelain Paving donated by CED Scotland’s Castlecary depot near Falkirk, the design demonstrated how the growing trend of using gardens as an extension of the home can be effectively achieved. A smartly paved outdoor dining area, fire pit and chill-out seating zone was surrounded by a mix of shrubs and perennials. The garden was the first to greet visitors coming through the showground entrance and was featured on BBC TV’s The Beechgrove Garden programme.
