John was awarded the coveted gold medal in Bloom for his inspirational garden ‘Nature’s Resurgence’. The garden reflected John’s love for the natural world and incorporated a colourful mix of planting to create a lush backdrop to his circular seating area. His experienced and expert eye were demonstrated in this masterclass of design and construction. The natural stone walls were curved and clad in cedar to create a textured and dramatic focal point in the garden. The pathways were beautifully created using old granite cobbles and paving slabs. The carpeted soft planting between the stones gave this garden an established sense of timelessness. While the addition of a copper water trough and rusted metal screening added to the rich multi-sensory experience of this award-winning garden.
