Show Gardens - RHS Hampton Court Show

RHS Back To Nature project

Designer:

HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and Landscape Architects Andree Davies and Adam White

HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and Landscape Architects Andree Davies and Adam White are at Hampton Court redesigning their RHS Back To Nature Garden which appeared at RHS Chelsea Flower Show back in May. The design will change a little but the garden’s theme will remain the same.

The design is inspired by childhood memories which are so often triggered by the natural world, the feeling of excitement as you drop your pooh stick in the water and dash to the other side of the bridge to see who is in the lead. The feeling of pride and accomplishment as you sit high in the 200-hundred-year old Chestnut tree house. These feelings are captured in our memories, memories of moments which although our own are shared by many. The garden was designed to recapture these moments and feelings for adults and spark excitement and love for nature in future generations.

Woodland trees and natural planting give the garden a calm and relaxing atmosphere. The planting includes plants for craft activities, edible plants such as wild strawberries and fragrant flowers to attract pollinators. Natural play elements feature throughout the garden including a stream which CED Stone group supplied boulders, Icelandic Pebbles and Rounded Flint Stones for.
