Addagrip, the leading resin bound and bonded surfacing manufacturer, is excited to be exhibiting at Landscape 2013 in Battersea Park, London, on 24 and 25 September. Among the new products which the company is promoting is Terrabound. Available in a select range of natural aggregates, Terrabound provides a seamless, porous, hard wearing, low maintenance decorative surface ideal for commercial projects, including landscaping schemes, housing developments, parks, car parks and access roads and driveways. Projects which have utilised Terrabound recently include Abbotsford House – which was recently reopened by the Queen, after a multi-million pound restoration. Based near Melrose in the Scottish borders, Abbotsford is the former home of the novelist, playwright and poet Sir Walter Scott. As part of the lottery-funded restoration works, Addagrip approved contractor, The Fraser Bruce Group, carried out the installation of 6mm Rhine Gold Terrabound Resin Bound Surfacing at a depth of 18mm to the courtyard and garden pathways totalling 850m2. Terrabound has also recently been given the seal of approval by the penguins at Edinbugh Zoo! The Fraser Bruce Group incorporated a free draining resin system for the perimeter of the compound and within the penguin nesting area – to ensure that penguins were not standing on permanently wet surfaces during their nesting periods.

Addagrip will also be featuring Addabound at Landscape 2013. Addabound resin bound surfacing has been developed to fulfil customer demand to include a minimum of 25% recycled content of aggregate and filler. The new range of decorative porous surfacing incorporates Addagrip’s latest UV stable resin technology, offering increased renewable resin content, strength and improved surface flexibility. A 3mm Addabound path in Natural Beach with an Addacolor sun logo (in Addacolor 3mm Yellow) was recently installed for an episode of ‘Love Your Garden’ with Alan Titchmarsh. Alan and his team created a garden which included a resin bound path which was supplied by Addagrip and installed by one of the company’s approved contractors, Orchid Flooring. Addabound was also utilised in a beautiful memorial garden for the landscape architect Jo Yeates – who was murdered at the end of 2010. The garden is at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens and Arboretum, close to her family home in Ampfield, Hants, and it was designed to reflect Jo’s love of butterflies. “We are delighted to be exhibiting at Landscape 2013 and are proud of the wide range of landscaping projects we’ve worked on this year. Together, they show just how flexible our products are,” says Roger Critchley, managing director of Addagrip.

Addagrip Addastone TP UV resin with a 6-10mm Brittany Bronze aggregate was installed within the nesting area, with a resin bound Terrabound 6mm Rhine Gold at a depth of 16mm for the perimeter surface.

Viewgres Viewgres revolutionized the outdoor living space, with the development of the 2.0 cm Eco porcelain tile for outdoor surfaces. These porcelain tiles and paving are incredibly versatile, they can be dry-installed, directly onto concrete, slabs, tarmac, single ply membranes etc., or they can be laid as a raised floor, thanks to the polypropylene supports at variable heights. The clean and dry install means that the floor can immediately be walked on. The raised flooring system helps to reduce unevenness due to uneven surfaces, but also allows for the housing of cables and pipes. All this and they look fantastic too. The tile has a non-slip surface that makes this new ceramic paving model by Viewgres the perfect ceramic solution for gardens, terraces, viewpoints, roof terraces, swimming pools, spas, resorts and every type of frequently used outdoor space. Viewgres is the only factory in the World that produces 2cm Eco outdoor porcelain tiles on dedicated production lines on a fulltime basis. Viewgres tiles offer natural stone textures, have a high breaking strength and are wear resistant. Come and see them at LANDSCAPE in Battersea Park this September.

Nidaplast nidagravel® has been developed for the creation of stable, long-lasting, waterpermeable path and road surfaces using gravel. Thanks to nidagravel® it is now much easier to walk, ride or drive across gravel than when the gravel is loose because you no longer sink into it. The gravel is laid in honeycombs which keep it in place and prevent it moving or migrating. From now on ugly ruts, puddles and potholes are a thing of the past.

nidagravel® sheets are made from extruded polypropylene and have a hollow, hexagonal structure (honeycomb structure). These sheets are light in weight and pressure resistant and are intended to reinforce and stabilise areas covered with gravel and pebbles. They are highly resistant to aggressive products, micro-organisms and rodents and are also recyclable. The sheets’ honeycombs are 49 mm in diameter and a porous geotextile is attached to the underside. This geotextile prevents gravel from sinking into the subgrade or ending up under the sheets and eventually pushing them up. It also acts as a root-proof membrane. nidagravel® is supplied in sheet form. Come and see for yourself at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.

Sitting in a Manu Nest will give you time to reflect‌ imagine it in the nicest place of your garden and enjoy blooming apple-trees in spring, or on an oak-tree branch in your country house and taste your morning coffee while watching the first sun beams. If you put it in a pine-tree next to the sea you will be able to relax and collect your thoughts. For busy people it will be useful in an office- to have short breaks or help you to feel inspired. Give yourself the best, and visit their stand at LANDSCAPE this September to see for yourself.

Carbon Gold Carbon Gold is committed to helping professional growers, landscapers and arboriculturalists get the best possible results by realising the benefits of biochar. Made from woody biomass that has been charred at a low temperature, their biochar is enriched with mycorrhizal fungi, seaweed and wormcasts and naturally helps improve soil structure, retains moisture, increases nutrients and grows more resilient plants, trees, shrubs and turf.

In early 2013, Bartlett Tree Experts started to use Carbon Gold biochar-based products in a series of tree transplanting trials. After the first growing season, the results have impressed them so much that Bartlett will now be using Carbon Gold Tree Growth Enhancer on selected customer sites across the UK. Dr Glynn Percival, Plant Physiologist at Bartlett Tree Research Laboratory, found that with the addition of just 5% Tree Growth Enhancer by soil volume, tree health was greatly improved. Not only did more transplanted trees survive; they displayed improved vitality, better growth, greener leaves and a larger canopy area. These British trials followed on from comprehensive, three year trials in the USA where Bartlett Tree Experts applied biochar to trees on urban street, suburban sites and other challenging soil environments, demonstrating the product’s effectiveness even in the harshest conditions. They found an increase in soil fertility, soil microbial activity and even disease resilience. Biochar was also found to reduce nutrient leaching and ground water contamination.

Carbon Gold founder Craig Sams says “we value working with Bartlett on this important research. £600 million is spent on planting new trees across the UK every year. Each year 25% of these die and are lost, costing the industry £150 million per year. Carbon Gold’s biochar could mitigate tree losses at a time when every carbon capturing leaf counts.” Newly launched and available to the trade this autumn, Carbon Gold Tree Growth Enhancer is ideal for transplanting new trees and is suitable for all tree types, shrubs and roses, bare root stock and hedging. Its easy-to-apply formula promotes quick establishment and can reduces losses, encouraging vigorous root growth and healthy soil biology. It also helps retain moisture, minimising plant stress at times of drought and reducing irrigation by 30%. Biochar is also a key active ingredient in Carbon Gold’s GroChar range of Soil Association approved composts, fertiliser and soil improver which are proven to speed up germination, increase nutrient uptake and improve soil structure – perfect for fast growing, long lasting turf, ornamentals and flowering plants. Visit their stand at LANDSCAPE 2013 to ask for more information.

Hobs Reprographics

Hobs Reprographics will be demonstrating how the latest in printing technology can benefit the Landscape industry, on stand F37 at Landscape 2013. Hobs, the leading independent printing company in Britain and Europe, will be demonstrating its cutting edge 3D printing, laser scanning and brand new Augmented Reality services. In response to rising demand from landscape designers and architects, Hobs Reprographics Ltd now offers a 3D Print and Model Making service which can produce affordable, high quality 3D Models from CAD files to enhance presentations and design concepts. Information on the new service can be found at Hobs’ innovative 3D Design team accepts all 3D formats and aims to deliver conceptual models within 24hrs.

At Landscape 2013 Hobs will also be demonstrating Augmented Reality (AR), which is the next big technology that demonstrates projects in reality, to scale and far more realistically than 3D images of traditional design software. AR refers to the process of laying computergenerated rendered images, animations, text and even sound, onto real-world images in real time. Vision-based AR uses a device such as a tablet or smart phones as a lens through which you can experience an augmented world by projecting onto a table.

Visitors to the Hobs stand will also be able to learn about Hobs 3D laser scans and surveys which mean clients can get their designs right first time. Hobs’ Point Cloud Scanning Service is used to scan a landscape or structure in under two hours, depending on the complexity of the project. From these scans, an Autodesk Revit model is created which typically takes 5-10 days. 3D models can also be produced from the scans if required. The service is perfect for pre construction site surveys or existing landscape and infrastructure which is due to be redeveloped. Landscape designers and architects can then accurately plan work and use the captured data to design the changes needed with confidence.

QuickHedge is a mature instant hedge that can be planted anywhere. It enables you to plant thick, mature and fully-grown hedges with all associated advantages. Now you can instantly create stylish privacy and pleasurable living conditions. QuickHedge is planted in 1 metre elements, so you are free to decide the length of your hedge. QuickHedge is available in various types of hedge plants like beech, hornbeam, prunus and many others. QuickHedge elements are 200 cm high. Some types are available in 80 and 120 cm.


QuickHedge products are very well looked after, both in the nursery and during and after planting. As a result there is no need for refilling (plants that die and have to be replaced). QuickHedges are grown with the utmost care. As young plants they were planted at exactly the right intervals. The hedges were cut very regularly during cultivation, resulting in healthy, well-branched, thick and compact hedge elements. However, one of the most important cultivation features takes place underground. By nature plants spread their roots widely. Regular and careful undercutting of the roots (by pulling a U-shaped knife underneath the hedges) results in a compact and well-branched root ball. GPS techniques are applied to ensure that the roots are carefully trimmed. The resulting root ball contains a great many root-hairs that enable the absorption of moisture and nutrients from the soil. Come and talk to the QuickHedge team about your next project at LANDSCAPE in Battersea Park this September.

They have been supplying the Light`n`Shade system in the UK for over 6 years and although up until recently many of the installations have been in the domestic market segment they have seen their business grow over the past couple of years in the hospitality segment. What their customers seem to like most about the system is its simplicity to operate, the speed in which an outside area can be made weatherproof and the fact that after a shower has passed the roof can be re-opened again quickly without any rainwater falling onto the area underneath the roof.

See us at LANDSCAPE This means that people using a terraced area for dining for example are not unduly disturbed by a passing shower and can carry on enjoying lunch or a drink without the need to move indoors with all the associated problems of finding an indoor space and moving plates, cutlery and personal belongings as well. Light ‘n’ Shade is designed to be the most flexible outdoor shading and shelter solution by being easy and quick to adjust and, therefore, allow users to maximise the amount of exposure or protection they would like from the sun or to regulate how much wind and/or rain they would like to allow through the Light`n`Shade roof.

Stormont is the seat of Government in Northern Ireland. The Stormont Estate is embracing progressive environmental thinking and setting an example by using Deck25. As well as being the location of Government, the Stormont Estate boasts a full sports campus and fine leisure facilities including The Cricket Club. Decking NI Ltd was approached to provide Deck25™ composite decking as a replacement for the aging timber decking on the gallery of The Cricket Pavillion.


Deck25™ composite decking travelled overseas to mainland Europe and one of its first ports of call was Almere, in Holland. Deck25™ composite decking was used to create a large relaxation area to the rear of this suburban property. Sliding patio doors open out onto the low maintenance deck. Deck25™ is an integral part of the overall garden design and was the perfect choice of material to bridge the space between the house and the landscaped garden. Silver Grey grooved Deck25™ was the chosen colour. Deck25™ composite decking is made from recycled plastic bottles and wood fibre. It is a 90 % recycled, low maintenance, eco-friendly product. The low maintenance deck will never have to be painted or treated. It will never splinter and is safe for children to play and run around on, in their bare feet if they so wish. Deck25™ composite decking also has a high slip resistance rating. Deck25™ is a Decking NI Ltd product and will be on display at the Landscape Show, stand A44-A45 at the back of the exhibition hall by the Seminar Theatres.

Traditional ground covers are made of polypropylene. Bonar now offer the ecological alternative: Duracover. This ecological ground cover, the first new product of our new green Bonar Biobased Textiles line is the result of years of research at the Bonar Research Center. The launch of Duracover is a worldwide premiere. Never before has there been an ecological alternative for the traditional ground covers that also retained the quality and ease of use. Duracover is based on the four core values of Bonar Biobased Textiles for landscaping: sustainability & ecology, quality, design and guaranteed. The arrival of Duracover is the start of a new era, a new generation. It is innovative; it is revolutionary. Duracover is very user friendly. It weighs up to 90% less than other biobased materials and is easier to cut, and with much better results it has a longer life, is more effective against weeds, and will not attract rodents. The compactness of Duracover also reduces the amount of transport required: saves money and saves the environment. Duracover can also be used as a separation fabric, for example between a ground layer and ground-covering materials, such as gravel, bark chips. etc.. Come and see it for yourself at LANDSCAPE in Battersea Park this September.

Sorbus International Ltd Sorbus International Ltd. has been appointed exclusive UK distributor for Metallo, the internationally respected Dutch brand of cutting and pruning tools. The introduction of the Metallo brand to the UK fits ideally with Sorbus’ distribution of the ARS range to offer a comprehensive variety of tools for professionals through to quality conscious consumers. Metallo has for years been known in Holland and Europe for its exceptionally wide range of high quality cutting tools at reasonable prices, a tradition Sorbus will carry over in the UK.

The very distinctive Metallo knives are made to make cutting fast and easy, using high quality steel from Solingen, Germany for the blades and are designed for the horticultural and agricultural industries as well as use by fruit growers and florists. They are available with wooden handles, PE handles and as pocket knives. The Metallo Germo line was developed to provide users with tools that have a disinfectant option to reduce cross-contamination of viruses or bacteria while harvesting in greenhouses and other growing areas.

The ergonomically designed pruning tools comprise everything from shears and secateurs to bypass, anvil and ratchet loppers. Blades are, in most cases, high carbon steel and chrome plated, with aluminium handles to keep pruners light in weight. The upper blades are replaceable and spare parts are available for almost all Metallo tools, whilst there is as much as 10 years’ guarantee on craftsmanship.

Hydro Turf Ltd are pleased to promote their innovative roof space hydroseeding service at LANDSCAPE 2013. This unique ‘green roof hydroseeder’ is fully H&S compliant with a crane lifting certificate renewed every six months. The bespoke hydroseeder was designed in-house by the Hydro Turf team in 2012 to undertake one of Europe’s largest green roof projects and is now proving popular with clients as a viable option to using expensive pre-grown blankets and plugs on sites where immediate plant cover is not necessarily required.

He goes on to say, “This sector can be very challenging both logistically and practically at times which we enjoy being involved in - our ‘green roof hydroseeder’ delivers a productive and cost effective solution to any roof space project in the UK and most importantly allows environmental consultants and architects the ability to specify bespoke site mixtures that aren’t grown commercially to deliver the best environmental habitat to that project”.

The ‘green roof hydroseeder’ is lifted from its own trailer by site crane and positioned directly onto the roof space offering safe access and working conditions for its specialist operatives. “Weight and size where key issues when designing the machine” says Justin Webster MD of Hydro Turf Ltd “the unit has a low kg/m2 load baring whilst still being of a size to be able to complete a productive 150-200m2 of cover a load. The pump and engine are uprated to handle 120m of hose if required so the machine does not normally need to be repositioned and so does not tie up valuable crane time on the site”.

Environmental Street Furniture will show that even the simplest element of street furniture deserves to have an interesting detail. With the play of light on the column different character from each view becomes apparent especially when columns are installed in a row.

Plantcare A unique new fabric groundcover, is being introduced to the UK by Leicestershire-based Plantcare. Called Ökolys, the groundcover has been developed by scientists at the Technical Textiles division of Beaulieau International in Belgium. Manufactured from special biopolymers, it is the world’s first biodegradable and compostable groundcover. It will be showcased for the first time in the UK at The Landscape Show, Battersea Park, London on September 24/25 (Stand E41).


Dominic Thomas, Sale Director at Plantcare, said the new product offered major advantages to landscaping and associated industries in the UK. “It is the ideal choice for permanent planting schemes,” he said. Ökolys is a high quality groundcover designed to provide very effective weed suppression for three years, allowing young plants to gain maximum benefit from naturally occurring and applied nutrients throughout this period. It then slowly biodegrades into a powder which is consumed by soil biota to become food for the maturing plants. While the idea of a polymer-based biodegradable groundcover is a totally new concept in the UK, Ökolys offers serious benefits to landscapers involved in creating permanent planting schemes.

In addition to landscaping, Ökolys is the perfect choice for tree nurseries and forestry applications. It will provide ideal protection for young trees and shrubs during the first few years of life without leaving any waste to clear up afterwards. For those involved in this area who do not want to use the fabric on the roll, Plantcare is producing the product in the form of tree planting squares. “These are designed to fit around and prevent the bases of young trees and shrubs from becoming weed infested but, unlike other polymer-based planting squares, offer the benefits of biodegradability and compostability,” said Mr Thomas.

The unique benefits of using CU-Soil – a new pavement profile from Landtech, is that if installed in an appropriately sized rootzone space, it gives the tree a significantly improved chance of long term survival and of being a benefit to its surroundings and the local environment. CU-Soil has been shown to promote the downward growth of tree roots – reducing cracked & damaged pavements surfaces and thereby, the consequential liability claims and it is SUDS compliant & will attenuate the volume of rainfall draining from the site – to the benefit of the trees. CU-Soil is quick and easy to install and environmentally friendly as there are no buried plastics. CU-Soil can be excavated and re-installed if required. It provides a stable load-bearing base for the construction of roadways and car parks and is suitable for all types of surfacing options, block paving, asphalt, and geo-grids with stone fill. CU-Soil forms a stable compacted base which is ideal for tree root ball anchoring systems and also provides pavement system that shifts design away from a single tree pit to allowing for the installation of a substantial rooting space for urban trees.

Garden Museum

In an encounter in Parliament with the decorated war hero, poet and by 1917 anti war campaigner Siegfried Sassoon, Winston Churchill put forward the idea that “War is the normal occupation of man” following a scornful look from Sassoon, Churchill amended his words adding “…War and Gardening”.

This short quote encapsulates the central theme of The Garden Museums’ 2014 exhibition, the classic dichotomy of war and peace, and the extremes of human experience. In 2014 the nation will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War; and we will reveal some of the stories that military histories overlook. The exhibition will explore the impact of the conflict on Britain’s heritage of gardens, urban parks, and designed landscape. Hundreds of parks and historic designed landscapes were transformed by temporary uses such as training camps or food production, or by abandonment. The exhibition will explore the concept and consequences of the government campaign to encourage growing food, the first ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign. Soldiers and civilians gardened to lessen the shortages brought about by actions of U Boats and the threats to trade from the Empire.


The exhibition will be the first to explore the therapeutic, spiritual and symbolic role of gardening alongside the practical need to garden during war time. It will unveil many new stories, interesting facts and details that have been long forgotten as we remember the human tragedy that was World War One. Come and talk to the Garden Museum to find out more about their work at this years LANDSCAPE show in Battersea Park.

Instant Hedges The importance of hedging and screening can be overlooked – that is until you suddenly find yourself in need of privacy or protection. Instant Hedges receive many phone calls each day from people who are desperate for a solution to block out external influences from their private space but are unsure of how to achieve it. The reason behind their request can vary hugely from problematic neighbours to noise pollution from roads to visual eyesores. Regardless of the reason Instant Hedges are passionate about finding the correct solution for their specific situation. They are proud to be able to offer a range of hedging and screening from 60cm to 600cm tall. Over the years they have identified some key trends in screening and have responded to these by increasing their range. The popularity of pleached trees over the past few years has skyrocketed. Pleached trees have the advantage of sitting neatly over a fence panel and extending the screening by almost the same height as the fence. In the past conifers may have been used to gain the height required but as land becomes more precious, economically and aesthetically, pleached trees have really found their niche. The structure of the pleached tree means minimal space is used in the garden and screening is given exactly where you need it.


Instant Hedges business and reputation has grown over the years but their commitment to offering complete end to end service from consultancy through sourcing, supply and distribution to planting and maintenance has remained. Managing Director Nick Angel concludes: “Our reputation has been built on the expertise of our personnel, our appreciation of customer expectation, the quality and service and the value-formoney we are able to deliver on each and every project.”

Design For Play

In 2008 Play England and the DCMS together published Design for Play: a guide to creating successful play spaces, and a revised edition will be published later this year. Whereas ‘messy’ or un-tidy play spaces are taken for granted in places like Germany, in the UK we still seem to expect our play spaces to look like sterile versions of ‘indoors’. But Design for play has helped many people to be more creative, and as a result play spaces are increasingly often landscapes with carefully-integrated play equipment, rather than just the traditional ‘Kit, Fence, Carpet’ model (as coined by Helen Woolley of Sheffield University) which focuses on a lot of equipment, set in an impact absorbent surface, and usually surrounded by fencing. Our children deserve much better than this and we’re pleased to see that clients across the country are continuing to experiment with play design. Tree swings are making a come-back to our open spaces; sand and water are becoming more common, and even planting is often included too.

Perhaps eventually we’ll stop creating sterile play spaces and focus instead on ‘playable landscapes,’ where contact with natural elements and materials adds play value and makes the play space more exciting and interesting to use too… watch this space! Come and listen to Play England and Aileen Shackell from ASA Landscapes tell you more about how to create successful play spaces at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.

Master Joint Masterjoint, a sister company of the The Mayfield Group, launched a brand new decking product earlier this year, designed specifically for domestic homes. With over 20 years’ experience in the design, manufacture and installation of plastics, the all new Hampton decking includes the very best of all the ideas and experience and is by far the best product we have ever produced. No products are recession proof but having a new product that ticks all the boxes and is very competitively priced is the absolute perfect recipe to ensure this product will be a market leader. The Hampton decking is made from some incredibly clever technology, incorporating some very modern materials such as ASA and Carbon, offering far better long term weathering benefits than all the other plastics they have used or produced before. So confident are they with these materials that they are offering a lifetime warranty with our entire range of Hampton decking! Even with all this new and incredible technology they have ensured that the core of our product is being made from recycled uPVC, which accounts for 85% of the decking, ensuring they maintain their pledge to be environmentally conscious.

See us at LANDSCAPE Hampton decking is designed to be easy to install with a very simple yet affective clip system, giving a pre-determined gap of 5mm between the planks. The clip allows the planks to move with the coexpansion and contraction from heat, which is crucial with any plastic decking product, reducing the fixings from breakage. Imagine the potential in the domestic market for this product! Vist them at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.

Hannah Griffiths


Hannah Griffiths is a mosaic artist and painter; she makes bespoke mosaics for public and private clients. Trained as a fine art painter, most of her work is initially developed through painting and then she loves the process of transposing these designs into mosaics, which is a beautiful and tactile medium. Working with a variety of materials including glass and ceramic tesserae, gilded glass and broken china she has undertaken diverse commissions including wall art for colleges and hospitals. Numerous domestic commissions for floors, kitchens, tables, mirrors etc. have been inspired by diverse subject matter including African textiles, Moroccan pattern, Italian church floors, the crown jewels and red hot chilli peppers. In 2012 Hannah created an exquisite egg ‘Conchiglia’ for The Faberge Big Egg Hunt London. In 2011 she made a beautiful crocodile, ‘Flora’, for Jungle City Edinburgh, and in 2010 she made ‘Figgy’ for Elephant Parade London. In 2009 Hannah was honoured to be awarded a scholarship by QEST to attend the Master in Mosaic course at Orsoni in Venice. The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust was set up in 1990 by the Royal Warrant Holders Association to award scholarships to talented craftsmen and women. At Orsoni she learnt how to work with smalti mosaics, which are made from beautiful handmade enamelled glass and cut with a traditional hammer and hardie, in the oldest and most respected mosaic establishment. Examples of Hannah’s work can be seen on the QEST stand at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.

The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) was formed to try and raise and maintain standards in the industry and to help consumers make an informed choice in a market place that is susceptible to problems. Formed in 1995, the APL, which operates as a Specialist Group of the Horticultural Trades Association, represents landscapers who have met a required standard of professionalism. Members of the Association are registered with the government endorsed TrustMark Scheme and are annually inspected and agree to follow a customer charter with clients. All APL members also hold the appropriate insurance and have traded for a minimum of two years. The APL provides homeowners with an even greater choice when selecting a landscaper. As a customer, you can feel confident that the APL landscaper you have chosen has met prescribed professional standards. The APL have a close partnership with the RHS and are responsible for the ‘Low Cost, High Impact’ gardens at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. The category was introduced to the show for the first time last year providing APL members with an exclusive opportunity to showcase their work. The gardens showcase a practical approach which also provides a wow factor. The aim is that visitors will be able to recreate the garden design, based on a fixed budget for hard landscaping, plant material and labour. This ‘Low Cost, High Impact’ concept has been so successful, it has also been rolled out to RHS Flower Show Tatton Park. The APL also host regular cluster group meetings around the country. These meetings offer members networking opportunities and sharing of ideas and best practice in the industry through the course of the year. The Association of Professional Landscapers also have designated website with an easy-to-use map of the UK to help you find a contractor near you. The APL is looking forward to being at LANDSCAPE again this year, which provides a great environment and opportunity to discuss with potential new members and consumers about the benefits of membership and of using an APL registered contractor. Why not come along and say hello.

Fernando G Fernando Gonzalez Garden Design is an award-winning practice with a reputation for making gardens that are artworks in themselves, whilst pushing the boundaries of conventional design by employing state-of-the-art technologies and manufacturing processes. In 2013, FGGD was named one of the 50 Most Innovative Practices across the Globe by Digital Landscape Architecture Now. At the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2013 Fernando Gonzalez was awarded a Silver-Gilt medal for the garden called ‘ The Sound of Silence ‘.

Fernando describes the garden, saying “It is a different and contemporary view of the traditional Zen garden , an abstracted small landscape that captures the essence of nature by contrasting opposing elements – the silence of the mountains made from Hi-Macs natural acrylic stone, the elegance and serenity of the bonsai and the sea made of gravel all contribute to the sense of calm and aesthetic pleasure. These elements provide clues in search for the garden’s deeper significance. Fernando is one of the featured speakers at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.

Q Lawns are looking forward to exhibiting at the LANDSCAPE show this autumn and will be showing some old favourites and one exciting new product that will have the designers drooling. This year, the Norfolk based grower celebrates 20 years of supplying quality turfgrass to the nation.

Sales and Marketing Manager Chris Carr says “We’re proud to have reached this landmark anniversary and see it as proof that landscapers and gardeners like our turf and they like our service – they must do – because they keep coming back for more!” Another popular product grown on the Q Lawns’ farm is Enviromat sedum matting which is great for low maintenance ground cover, but what it’s most often used for is creating living green roofs on garden buildings. Living roofs are more or less mainstream these days and because Enviromat is lightweight, easy and competitively priced it just keeps on increasing in popularity.

Ivan Black

Ivan Black was born in London in 1972, he works predominantly in the medium of kinetic sculpture. His interest in sculpture began at an early age and motion quickly became central to his work; adding as he saw it another dimension of complexity and interest to his experiments. An inherent problem solver, he spent his early years amassing multi disciplinary skills in the pursuit of the means to realise his ambitious ideas. Ivan uses his unique methodology to create kinetic works that mutate upon the introduction of energy. The repetition of identical elements is a recurrent theme in his work, by this means he builds complex fluid structures. Each work is a section of a potentially continuous sequence, generated in form by the application of systematic rules to the geometry. Ivan takes inspiration for his designs from iconic natural forms, combining mathematical concepts and the pioneering spirit of the British engineer to create a synergy between science, art and technology.


His meticulously engineered and seamlessly integrated mechanisms are central to the behaviour and appeal of his work. Tending towards the minimalist in design, the movement is allowed to take centre stage. His work has been widely exhibited including at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice and The Cass Foundation Sculpture Park, Interart Sculpture Park in the Netherlands, Palmyra Sculpture Centre Mallorca and the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden. He is a regular exhibitor at the Kinetica Art Fair and his work is included in many significant private collections. Ivan Black will be presenting a new range of hanging and free standing wind powered kinetic sculptures at this year’s LANDSCAPE show. The works rotate gently in the wind creating striking and mesmerizing centrepieces for gardens and outdoor spaces.

GLDA See us at LANDSCAPE John Cullen Lighting are part of the Steering Committee for the LANDSCAPE show. Lucy Martin, their Design Director talked to us about one of the their recent projects. She says “The brief from the client was to create an inside/outside party space. Lighting was layered to produce dynamic effects across the split level garden. At high level light skims down the wooden terracing whilst accent lighting is added with spiked 1w LED Kew spotlights and Hampton flood lights to planting and to uplight the olive tree. At low level 1w Oslo floor washers create a floating effect under the table and benches. To create the party feel, a panel was back lit with colour changing LED RGB Slinky strip which reflects colour throughout the garden. The water rill was lit from under the stone paving with an LED strip adding drama and interesting reflections. Additional colour changing LED strips create the illusion of the water rill extending towards the house and adds more colour and drama close to the house. As a final touch oversized pots were uplight and framed with 1w LED Sienas for a dramatic play on light and shadow.” Come and listen to Lucy’s colleague, Sally Storey, talk about “Lighting – the forgotten tool in the garden” at this years LANDSCAPE show in Battersea Park in September.

The GLDA is Ireland’s only association of professional garden designers, horticulturists and landscape architects. Individual members provide garden and landscape design services throughout Ireland. Every Full Member is rigorously assessed by an external panel of professionals, made up of experts from the design, horticultural and academic sides of the profession. Objectives: • To set standards for garden and landscape design. • To raise public awareness of garden and landscape designers and the services they have to offer. • To liaise with relevant organisations in order to provide comprehensive education and ongoing training for members. • To facilitate the exchange of information between members, suppliers and the public. What The GLDA Does The faith of those early members was not misplaced. Within a few short years the GLDA has grown to become a dynamic force for good, which is now at the forefront of the revolution in Irish gardening. Through its ongoing training opportunities in drawing and surveying, its practical workshops and field trips, its intelligence gathering network, and most publicly, its highly acclaimed annual international design seminar, the GLDA disseminates new information on methods, techniques and current best practice in landscape design and horticulture, and has created a new demand for improved quality and increased availability of a much wider and more interesting selection of plants.

See us at LANDSCAPE Deep Root Partners is a leading urban landscape products and ecosystem services supplier whose mission is to integrate green utilities such as trees, soil and storm-water in to the built environment. The Silva Cell is a specialized tool to meet sustainability goals and improve the ecological function of urban sites through the integration of large tree growth and on-site storm-water management. The modular Silva Cells stack to create customized void spaces beneath paving (footpaths , plazas, etc.) that is then filled with soil. This soil provides unlimited rooting space for trees, enabling them to grow large and improving canopy cover without disrupting surrounding utilities. The same soil volume simultaneously acts as on-site storm-water management, significantly reducing non-point source pollution and controlling the rate, volume, and quality of water runoff. By integrating trees, soil, and stormwater, the Silva Cell improves sustainable site design. It is ideal for use in cities and towns and meets engineering and loading standards with no loss of structural hard landscape integrity. Come and meet Deep Root at LANDSCAPE in September in Battersea Park, London.

The granting of a Royal Charter has been an aspiration of the Institute since its inception in 1984 in view of the major benefits it will bring to the Institute and its members. A Royal Charter will enhance the Institute’s ability to present our profession through increasing the profile, recognition and standing of professional horticulture. As a Chartered body the Institute’s ability to raise standards will be strengthened and the Institute will be better placed to represent and support horticulture as a profession and assist members in the practice of the profession. On becoming a Chartered Institute in 2014 all members will retain their existing membership level but will also have the benefits associated with membership of a Chartered body. However, the Royal Charter equips the Institute with the new ability to award individual Chartered status to members of the Institute. This new prospect would be optional for members to apply for should they choose. Individual Chartered status will recognise the achievement of a senior practitioner level and this will support members by confirming their high level of professional expertise. This has the major potential to help individuals in all aspects of the Industry. The Institute of horticulture are proud supporters of LANDSCAPE in Battersea Park this September and look forward to meeting members there.

Judith Hobbs Judith’s pots create dramatic forms for the contemporary house and garden, drawing on traditions as diverse as Minoan Crete and Art Deco, and inspired by the dramatic qualities of light and shadow in the Mediterranean and North Africa. Judith uses a range of techniques; including throwing and coiling to produce unique handmade pieces with bold geometric designs and strong simple shapes. The resulting work is dynamic and striking. “I enjoy the interplay of strong clear lines and edges and each pot that I make feels like an exploration of this.” She also makes lizards and geckos, many combined with pots, which have unusual vibrancy and a lifelike quality, they bring an element of the unexpected, the unpredictable to the garden. Judith was a student on the Harrow Studio Pottery course from 1983 until 1985. She now lives and works in Bristol in a purpose built studio in her garden. She is a regular exhibitor at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Over many years of making pottery and ceramics her ideas have shifted in focus and emphasis but the core influences are unchanged: open spaces, straightforward shapes, a simple ceramic palette crisp lines and bold patterns.

See us at LANDSCAPE UK based garden designer Andrew Fisher Tomlin has been commissioned to design a show garden for the inaugural Australian Garden Show, Sydney in September 2013. The garden is created in collaboration with Tom Harfleet who Fisher Tomlin worked with to create a Gold Medal winning garden in New Zealand earlier this year. Andrew said “This is an amazing opportunity for us to showpiece UK design down under and is a natural extension of the success we have had taking our design ideas overseas. We were attracted by the new show because it aims to offer more than the traditional garden show with cutting edge design and horticulture but also an incredible night time experience not seen anywhere before.” The inspiration for the showpiece garden, called September Sky, comes from those spring skies when days become longer and the light becomes clearer, where colours are sharp, crisp and silver. The garden uses typical Australian natives from a perspective of the outsider to the country, a fresh eye in a contemporary setting where strong architectural forms engage with a much wilder planting.

Andrew added “Light, fire and sound will be brought in to transform the landscape at night-time. It’s the first time we’ve had a cocktail lounge right next to our show garden so we’re going to create something special for all those night time visitors.” The inaugural Australia Garden Show Sydney will open 5-8th September in the city’s Centennial Park. The show is developed by Destination New South Wales on behalf of the New South Wales Government and will be the launch platform for the stunning series of floral and garden events taking place throughout the region from spring onwards. Andrew Fisher Tomlin is one of the many international speakers at this years LANDSCAPE event in Battersea Park this September. Register for free tickets and come along and listen to him.

Juliet Sargeant

Taming the rural landscape to create a pleasing garden to suit your lifestyle can be a challenge. There is an abundance of beauty to be found in the countryside, but Nature will inevitably throw up difficulties, such as water-logged heavy clay, windswept hillsides and fields that flood. Juliet Sargeant thrives on a challenge and has many years of experience in moulding the landscape and selecting the right plants in order to create beautiful gardens that sit well in their surroundings. Last year Juliet was awarded the 2012 inaugural prize for a sustainable garden by the Society of Garden Designers. Her own garden is a windswept coastal site.

The plants from this area are more cold resistant due to the harsh winters in Northern Italy and therefore more suitable for the UK. The range offered by the cooperative include rare species of plants like Firmiana, Halesia, Nyssa, Syncopsis and Stewartia and above all you can find real specimen plants that are truly hard to find! Flora Nord can organise the logistics so there is no minimum order per grower, and partial loads are possible. Do come along and speak to them at LANDSCAPE this September to see what is possible.

Lynda Hukins The natural environment, the coastal shoreline and the beauty of the Weald countryside in Kent where she lives inspire Lynda Hukins’ work.

British wildlife is her dominant theme although in recent years she has created abstract sculptures. Many of her wildlife bronzes hint at abstraction in their simplicity of form, giving them a contemporary character. Lynda is drawn to the strength and movement she finds in her subjects and uses a strong definition of line to draw the eye to the sculpture, and express these essential qualities. Samples of Linda’s work will be available for viewing at LANDSCAPE in Battersea Park this September.

Tamata At Tamata, they specialise in growing Acer palmatum (Japanese maples) to a mature specification in nurseries in New Zealand where plentiful sunlight, high rainfall, and fertile soil combine to produce a strain of Acer palmatum uniformly of superior quality and strength. As mature specimens, Tamata trees are ideal for planting (in pots or in the ground) within up-market design projects where the desired effect is an instant “established” garden. Additionally, the taller upright varieties are well-matched for commercial applications such as parks and street plantings. Their product range is extensive, offering some unique cultivars as well as better known varieties grown to a specification rarely previously available in the UK; giving an opportunity to add a touch of uniqueness and individuality to projects. Their trees are subject to the regulatory requirements of UK government agencies such as DEFRA and FERA to monitor, inspect, test and sanction Tamata’s product starting 12 months prior export, before the tree is even lifted from the field.

Coworth Park Estate is located near Ascot, in Berkshire. The house and estate comprises over 14 hectares of gardens and woodlands. The brief for the landscape design was to create a new luxurious setting for the new use of Coworth Park House as an eco country house hotel, with leisure activities within a wider parkland setting, including the existing Coworth Park Polo Club. The latter is a popular venue within the British aristocracy. Aggregate Industries provided the solution by supplying 1000m2 of Chinese Winter Green paving with a riven finish, which was used within the parkland setting.

Indu+ Cooking today is a social occasion unlike in earlier times when the cook was shut away in the kitchen for hours and cut off from the guests. Now we want to have a great time with our guests and this will preferably take place outdoors in nice weather. We want to lose as little time as possible and eat together heartily. The Belgian company indu+ is introducing a completely new cooking experience. Its rolling trolleys mean you can move the kitchen outside in an instant. The induction hobs in the trolleys are modular and can therefore be easily changed and adapted to the menu requirements: cooking, using a wok, grilling, teppanyaki... Outdoor cooking no longer has to mean just a (gas) barbecue. With the indu+ trolleys it has a completely new dimension. The modularity of both the trolleys and the hobs means your outdoor kitchen can be fully personalised. Induction cooking is also advancing irresistibly as this type of cooking is quick, safe and energy efficient. The company uses the trolleys to adapt perfectly to a fluid, flexible lifestyle and the trend in which the boundaries between indoors and outdoors fade away. Full details of the entire Indu+ range will be available on their stand at LANDSCAPE.


Jennifer Grey Jennifer Gray designs and makes objects and jewellery in a range of materials, which move in and out of the hand-made, and the digital. Each series is unified, in particular through use of traditional hand carving methods, enhanced by taking advantage of emerging digital technologies. Jennifer sees herself as a link in a chain of makers. She uses what she has learned from the past to blend it with what is available to her today to contribute towards the future. She wants to demonstrate that new technological approaches can blend naturally into a piece of work as a means to build upon what’s gone before. ‘Amphora Garlands’ and ‘Tessellating Wall Tiles’ have been made using digital carving methods developed during her postgraduate studies at the Royal College of Art. She casts the final pieces in reconstituted marble in a mixture of marbled tones, which are then deliberately distressed to give the impression of something more ancient. These wall tiles can be applied to interior or exterior walls using regular household tile adhesive. Jennifer will be part of the QEST demonstration area at LANDSCAPE in Battersea Park this September.

Gin Garden


A feature at this years LANDSCAPE show will be “Gin Garden”. A travelling, unexpected bar which you will often find across London, popping up in unexpected spaces, mixing and serving drinks.

They work with distilleries, complementing the botanicals of their unique gin with local herbs, fruits and flowers and they source as many ingredients as possible from local artisan producers and small businesses. The drinks are unique to the area they are created in. The Gin Garden can come to your space and make your location blossom into a decorative scenic background. They can “bring a strip of velvety turf, with a hedge of lilac or red may, or whatever happens to be in season, as a background, one or two cherry trees in blossom, and clumps of heavily-flowered rhododendrons filling in the odd corners; in the foreground you have a blaze of carnations or Shirley poppies, or tiger lilies in full bloom.” Gin Garden love learning about the botanicals in gin and about the fruit, flowers, herbs and spices that they use to make their drinks. They know lots of other people do too. So whether you are interested in how to grow chocolate mint, how to mix a drink using preserved plums or the health benefits the ginger in your hot toddy could bring you, one of their team should be able to tell you, and if they don’t - they know someone who does. Come and visit them for a taste of LANDSCAPE at the show this September.

Andrian Melka In 2008 he was honoured to receive a QEST scholarship to study different methods of working in marble. He spent a month at Franco Cervietti’s workshop in Italy working alongside old marble masters. In 2010 he created a statue of The Medici Venus for Chiswick House gardens collaborating with English Heritage. One of his major involvements were in the project for recreating The Spirit of the Ocean Fountain for Santa Barbara Court House a historical building. Together with a team of 5 other carvers the fountain was finished in 7 months.


Andrian Melka is a figurative sculptor working with different materials like marble, stone and bronze. The majority of his works have been commissioned by private clients in Uk and USA on which he has tried to develop and refine his own style. Working directly on the stone block without the need for detailed models make his work more challenging but ultimately more satisfying Andrian says.

Andrian is recognised for his skills in the sympathetic restoration of antique sculptures. Currently he is working on the restoration of the Grinling Gibbons Memorial of Archbishop Sterne which resides in York Minster and he will be featured on the QEST stand at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park, London.

Zoë Cull designs and makes functional and ornamental works in natural stone. Following two years’ training in the traditional skills and techniques of architectural masonry and carving, a grant from the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust in 2003 enabled her to spend short periods of apprenticeship with five of the country’s leading letter-cutters. She subsequently set up a workshop with partner, Alex Evans, with whom she collaborates under the name Stoneform. Aided by a Crafts Council Development Award in 2006, Zoë worked to establish a body of creative work, leading to a diverse and interesting variety of private, corporate and public commissions. These include a suite of liturgical furniture for the Church of St Anthony of Padua in Radlett, Herts; a trio of bench seats for Salisbury District Hospital; a large sculptural feature for David Wilson Homes in Bristol and a landscaped space incorporating carved paving and seating at Poole Crematorium, Dorset. She has exhibited widely, including in selected shows at West Dean (‘Art and Memory’), Roche Court (‘Riddles’) and The Garden Gallery.

Zoë Cull

Recently, Zoë has become interested in using other materials in association with stone, and also in the further integration of her work with its surroundings through the use of hard and soft landscaping. She welcomes all opportunities, no matter how big or small, and will apply herself as dedicatedly to the carving of a simple house name as to the undertaking of a complex and large-scale artwork. See her on the QEST demonstration area at LANDSCAPE this September.

Richard Mi

Richard Miers has been designing gardens for over 15 years, both in the UK and abroad, including a country garden for a grade 1 listed house in Norfolk, a 15 acre garden for a new build Palladian mansion in Surrey and numerous town gardens in London. Lauded as one of the top ten up and coming garden designers by House and Garden Magazine in February 2011 he was also invited to design a show garden for The Daily Telegraph/House and Garden Fair in 2007. Of which Susan Crewe, Editor of House & Garden, said of ‘The Scented Garden’: ‘An inspired piece of design; so much of the moment, yet with its roots in a thousand years of horticultural history and tradition.’ Despite being rooted in this time-honoured tradition, his gardens are clean and classically contemporary in style, with a strong sense of geometry. When designing, Richard likes to begin by putting structure into the garden, be it with hedges, walls, paths, terraces, water, trained fruit trees or an avenue of trees. These divide the garden into areas of manageable human scale, defining spaces and giving each area a purpose whilst providing shelter, varying points of interest and framed views; they also help hold the garden together through the winter months. This structure is then softened with bulbs, herbaceous flowers, shrubs and roses so that with the advent of spring & summer the excitement of the budding flowers adds a new, altogether softer dimension to the garden.



If there is a theme that runs through his work it is the curved hedging that winds its way though his herbaceous borders or stands out in sensuous baroque curves against lawn or gravel. Symmetry is also important, coupled with a sense of balance and proportion, resulting in gardens that are both harmonious and handsome. Design ethos: ‘Good garden design is all about teamwork and communication. Translating ideas coherently to both client and contractor is key.’ Richard was chosen to represent the United Kingdom in the 2012 Gardening World Cup in Nagasaki Japan and is one of the featured speakers at this years LANDSCAPE show in Battersea Park in September.

Rothfuss More than 25 years ago, when the Rothfuss company introduced spot-welded gabions to the German market they were captivated by the idea of using durable, galvanized screen-mats to build retaining walls out of rock or other natural materials. The large-dimensioned metal baskets, called gabions, facilitate the engineering of firm structures by providing a supporting framework to nature. Playing the role of the pioneer of the industry, Rothfuss continued to research and develop new areas of applications, from facade greening to fencing gabions, by transforming their creative concepts into practical solutions. Rothfuss, based next to Stuttgart, Germany, is a medium-sized family enterprise manufacturing products out of steel wire, for more than 160 years, and meanwhile servicing many European markets. The company is guided by the spirit of invention, innovation and constant improvement, which is the typical mentality of Southwestern Germany, with Porsche, Mercedes and Bosch as the most prominent representatives of this region. Visit us at LANDSCAPE this September and see the range of products we have and how we might best help your next project.

Driven by the two founding partners, the ethos for the company has always been based in sound construction methods, and quality design & finish. And as the consultation and preliminary design service is free, there’s nothing to lose by arranging a visit. Come along and talk to us at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park, London.

The Pot Company

As such, when Pot Company owner Kevin McMahon made the decision to retire recently, it seemed a natural fit for the two companies to open a dialogue. Discussions reached a successful and rapid conclusion that has facilitated a seamless and smooth transition.

Round Wood Trading is set to continue its recent, rapid expansion after acquiring the Pot Company, one of its long-standing suppliers. The provider of Home & Garden Features, has historically specialised in large scale cast iron products, including benches, urns and lamp posts. Over recent years, however, they have become increasingly active in the pot and planter market, with a focus on large scale, quality models well suited to the landscape market.

The Pot Company has been sourcing garden planters from around the world for almost 30 years. This depth of experience has allowed them to develop a unique and varied range featuring consistently popular design themes and materials with proven durability.

A significant portion of market share, both trade and retail, has been won in this time through effective pricing and the development of supply chains. Whilst many products have been sourced from a number of international partners, a key relationship was established with the long running ‘Pot Company,’ based just 15 miles away in Lamberhurst, Kent.

A selection of their range will be available to see at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.

Kemp Sails can bring assistance to the design process and advise with aspects of shading, shelter, drainage, windage, materials and fixings. We do not generally undertake installations, preferring to assist and support contractors with incorporating the installation into their own program of works, (which keeps the project price controlled and potentially adds another profit centre for the project). They do however maintain alliances with several Approved Installers who can offer an implementation service depending upon budget and location. Come and speak to them at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.

Senlac Stone

See us at LANDSCAPE Established in 1960, Senlac Stone is the UK’s leading manufacturer and distributor of swimming pool copings, paving and balustrades. Their mission has always been to combine the finest production skills with the highest possible customer satisfaction. They offer a wide range of paving for outdoor and internal use in either reconstructed natural quarried stone or natural stone and whatever the shape or size of your swimming pool, they can supply all your needs direct from stock.

Designs are generated using computeraided-design, and are then planted and grown on at the nursery. They pride themselves on being able to produce any design idea, large or small, if they can design it - they can plant it! You can have your design delivered to anywhere in the UK, the pre-rooted tiles of plants are simply slid out of their trays and onto a preprepared bed instantly transforming the bed into a colourful work of art within hours. If you’re looking for a display with the “wow” factor, have you considered a 3D display? Their imaginative design and production team have created everything from Spitfires for war commemoration, displays for the Chelsea Flower Show, giant tennis balls for Wimbledon, and even 3D sporting figures for the Olympics. So your imagination really is the limit. First time exhibitor at the show, come and see them at LANDSCAPE this September and take a look at some of the unbelievable displays they can create for you.

Kernock Plants

Putting together a carpet bedding display yourself can be a laborious task. It takes time and know-how to get it right. That’s why Kernock Plants offer bespoke InstaPlant® carpet bedding displays that are designed and grown to order at their nursery in Cornwall. They do everything for you, so that you can have a professional display without the hassle.

Mondi Plants Mondi began as a local producer/supplier of bamboo in Pistoia,Italy in 2000. In the next two years Mondi began to export a wider range of plants to the French market, and since then it has developed to the point to which we now export the entire Italian outdoor ornamental plant range for clients in Ireland, the UK, France, Switzerland, Albania,Holland, and Jordan.


Mondi is the name of the founder and owner of their plant nursery, and it’s apt that his name sounds like the Italian for world, “mondo”. This noun could have been a perfect name for their company, which employs people from three different countries.

Their positive experience of producing, communicating, collaborating, and exporting plants to our clients on the basis of good will, faith, and gratitude reinforces our belief in the capacity of people worldwide. Come and speak to the at LANDSCAPE this September at Battersea Park.

Jonathan Denby


We recently spoke to Jonathan Denby who shared his thoughts about follies. He told us “I’ve always admired the way Victorians would build a Folly on their land, which had no other purpose than to look good and be admired. One such Victorian was Alexander Brogden, the owner of Holme Island in Grange who, when he had finished building the Furness railway, built a circular Temple of Vesta in his garden. I came across a photo of the temple while I was doing some research on Grange in the Barrow Records Office and was immediately captivated by it. I was told that there was no possible chance of the National Park planners giving me permission to build a modern folly, but, with the thought that the Victorians wouldn’t have been daunted by such a detail, I drew up some plans and put them in. The doubters were wrong and the plans were passed, albeit with the unnecessarily sarcastic comment that it was “more Las Vegas than Lake District”. It has taken several years, but the building is now finished. I think it’s rather lovely. I’ve called it The Rotunda. It isn’t a folly as such but has a practical, and of course commercial purpose as a wedding chapel. A licence has been granted for couples to get married in the chapel, but they can also spend their wedding night there, as it can be magically transformed into a bridal suite. There’s a hidden bed, which comes down from a wall; a secret door to a concealed bathroom and a TV which drops down from the ceiling. You can lie on the bed and look at the stars through the glass domed roof. Perhaps the planners did have a point after all when they mentioned Las Vegas.” Jonathan Denby is one of the featured speakers at this years LANDSCAPE exhibition in Battersea Park this September.

It is vital that our students succeed as it reflects on all we do for them.” In recent years London College of Garden Design students have won more awards in the Society of Garden Designers Awards than any other college and in 2012 and 2013 students have reached the finals of the RHS Young Garden Designer of the Year competition.

Award winning London based artist Gary Drostle creates site specific artworks for landscape and architecture. Specialising in wall and floor mosaics and mosaic sculptures Gary’s work brings colour and durability to the environment. His work uses natural stones, hand made Italian glass or tough ceramics to create these beautiful features, each one designed uniquely to reflect the character of the area. With over twenty-five years experience Gary has built an international reputation for his mosaic art and can create works in both traditional and modern styles, always with a strong emphasis on design. Developing ideas in collaboration with architects, landscape designers, local communities and local authorities Gary’s work can be seen in parks, town centres and public buildings across the UK and in the USA.
