RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015 Show Garden - Gold - The Telegraph Garden

The Telegraph Garden

  • GoldGold
Marcus Barnett has designed a garden inspired by the De Stijl Movement. The Telegraph Garden reflects strong rectilinear geometry with coloured blocks contributing colour and textural relief, whether viewing from within or when viewed from above. Two walls punctuate the boundary hedges and act as canvas foils to the plants and garden. Trees and hedges introduce vertical detailing, sculptural form and dappled shade, forming the main structural elements and complementing a series of paths and waterways.
Plants have been selected to provide harmonious tonal balance and textural contrast within rectilinear planting spaces. Vibrant primary colours and closely related tones used by the De Stijl Movement are emphasised, with restful and balancing foils of green and white.
