Solus Decor have collaborated with the award winning garden designer Rosemary Coldstream at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show this month. Rosemary’s Best of Both Worlds Garden won a gold award at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.
The Best of Both Worlds Garden was designed for an imaginary couple who have a small garden but differing tastes. To keep each other happy, they’ve split the garden into two equal halves. One side has a country-garden feel and a palette of blues, purple and pinks. The other side is more contemporary with a simpler mix of green foliage and golden grasses.
About the Best of Both Worlds Garden
Rosemary Coldstream has incorporated Solus Decor’s elevated halo fire pit in the contemporary side of the garden in a sunken seating area. The planting in the contemporary area in a more simplified palette of yellow, green, blue and hints of red. The landscaping is linear in its design in contrast to the country style garden.
The garden was created by landscaping apprentices, trainees and students on BALI’s GoLandscape initiative which is supported by the RHS. BALI’S GoLandscape initiative encourages young people to pursue a career in horticulture. The young designers, landscapers and contractors have been mentored by designer Rosemary Coldstream and David Dodd of The Outdoor Room as part of the Best of Both Worlds Garden project.
