How we Craft a Sophisticated Garden

Sophisticated gardens add value to your property and class to your lifestyle. Making one requires a deep understanding of horticulture and construction. Our show garden awards are testament to the calibre of finishes. Our director insists that achieving a gratifying result depends on the ability to look at the whole project, work methodically and then use detailed understanding of the elemental parts to build it on the ground.

We have to dive deep into to the chemistry, physics and biology of the material in question to know how we can achieve a certain feature or resolve a geotechnical problem. We follow established protocols and procedures but we always question if they are appropriate. If there is a better way, we work it out and make it happen. This process of understanding and comparing the merits of different materials and methods means the result is sure to be robust and unique.

After helping two new designers build three RHS show gardens in 2019, we announced 2020 to be the inaugural year for our “New Garden Designer” Award. This has been launched to encourage and assist designers to bring their creativity to the industry by working together to build their first show garden. The aim is to host unique show gardens that create new styles and to improve the world of horticultural design.

COVID-19 UPDATE: The RHS has cancelled all shows in 2020 and some in 2021, therefore Xardin have opened the entry criteria to include community garden projects as well as show gardens.

The organisers believe the global Corona Pandemic, “The Lockdown” alongwith the associated societal shift are all fertile grounds for new ideas and encourages you to use your time well, we believe that your message should be heard.

Experience It

We hold workshops so you can come to meet us to find out how we have helped other garden designers, home owners and developers to create their dream gardens. Our next workshop “Getting Your Message into the Show Garden World” will be a special edition webinar in November 2020.  SIGN UP to get a personal mentor for your show entry or to find out more.
