Chelsea Flower Show

Here we have another stunning case study for you guys. This time we have an external project over at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

For this project, our Reclaimed Barnstock brick slips were used to create an original looking reclaimed brick wall as part of a show garden.

The Enchanted Rain Garden was designed and put together by Landscape Architect Bea Tann, GK Wilson Landscaping and their extra talented team.

This garden draws on the enchanting power of rain to create a small haven of woodland wonder within an urban space.

Inspired by a rainy garden in Manchester, this container garden is designed to thrive in wet conditions, influenced by UK forests whose lush foliage is energised and born out of the regularity of rainy weather.

It features robust, deep green planting with waxy textures that glisten when wet, as well as ferns which hold raindrops in the soft spaces between their leaves.

Rough stone reclaimed planters speak back to the ancient forest’s true naturalistic form whilst also creating an ideal surface on which to grow moss, itself an integral part of the woodland ecosystem.

A rain collection barrel also allows the storage and re-use of valuable rain water in the absence of wet weather. The overall narrative and design of this garden evokes the spirit of the UK’s northern cities, harnessing the magic of a rainy environment whilst talking more practically to the growing regularity of stormy weather we face as a result of climate change. 

The show garden was such a hit at the Chelsea Flower Show, that it was awared the Silver Gilt Medal. 

What better way to create a Manchester inspired garden than to use bricks that have actually come from the demolition of a Manchester factory. These bricks have had over 100 years of the rainy Manchester weather conditions. These years of weathering have added to the character of the bricks and give them their worn, aged appearance. This is something that can’t be replicated used new bricks or brick slips.
