2019 will see Kate and the team design and build their 10th show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and they couldn’t be more pleased that it is for a wonderful charity doing such amazing work in the UK. We are also excited to be creating this show garden on Main Avenue at Chelsea which will make this a very memorable garden for the whole team in years to come.
The Greenfingers Charity Garden is a lush green split level garden which provides a peaceful, interactive and uplifting space where life-limited children with complex needs, their families, friends and carers can come together for play, relaxation or peaceful reflection. Set over two levels, with a lift (yes we did say a lift!) and sloped walkways, the ‘Greenfingers Charity Garden’ is an accessible space for people of all ages and abilities.
With its magical water-feature and innovative design, this garden aims to highlight and promote the therapeutic benefits of the outside spaces created over the past 20 years by the Greenfingers Charity, the charity dedicated to creating inspiring gardens for life-limited children and their families who spend time in hospices across the UK.
Kate has designed the garden to have a variety of different spaces. There are places to relax in the sunshine and also under canopies. Hit and miss brickwork walls create privacy, shade and interesting shadows without blocking views. The inclusion of a lift system will ensure disabled access to all levels of the garden.
Kate says: “I am honoured and delighted to have been chosen by the GreenfingersCharity to design and build this garden. Myself and the team are excited to be bringing their dreams of a garden at Chelsea to life, we hope we can do it justice. The Charity does great work so helping them to raise awareness while simultaneously promoting the many benefits of outdoor spaces is wonderfully in line with our company ethos. Usable green spaces in every sort of environment are key to uplifting and enriching the lives of the people who use them.”
Greenfingers is a national charity dedicated to supporting life-limited children and their families who spend time in hospices around the UK. To date Greenfingers Charity has created 56 inspiring gardens in children’s hospices around the country and has a further waiting list of hospices that need their help.
Please visit the RHS Chelsea Flower Show from the 21st – 25th May 2019 to see this amazing garden and support this important charity.
