Matt Maddocks is a talented sculptor who produces an exquisite range of hand carved granite garden features, usually exploring the contrasts between geometric and natural forms. He uses his artistic abilities to choose each stone individually based on its natural connection with his designs.
His RHS Chatsworth display showcased a range of his sculptures, with one particularly large piece standing towards the front and a seating area towards the back. A natural green planting scheme framed the stone pieces, with grassy banks built up around the sides, and was designed by Rachel Owen from Manuka Landscapes. CED were delighted to donate beautiful Icelandic pebbles for the ground, which created a dark and dramatic effect when teamed with the dark khaki walls. The pebbles were laid on top of CEDApath, CED’s gravel stabilisation system, to keep the pebbles in place.
