The natural landscape is a major influence in gardens of all sizes this year. Joe Perkins MSGD imagines the ever-changing coastal landscape using naturalistic seaside planting including Agapanthus, Sea Kale and the Australian Cushion Bush, while Tom Hoblyn MSGD takes inspiration from the wind-blown sand dunes of arid landscapes for his Middle Eastern garden.
More easily replicated is the planting on the Warner’s Distillery garden by Helen Elks-Smith MSGD, inspired by the English countryside and including a wildflower turf embedded with local species of Cowslip, Achillia and Harebell and a swathe of native hedgerow. Elsewhere, in Sue Hayward’s artisan garden, the designer has created a haven for wildlife.
