After a very hot few weeks at RHS Tatton Park Flower Show, Will has returned with a Gold medal and the title of the RHS Young Designer of the Year 2018 for his garden 'At One'.
"It was a brilliant experience to be involved in such a prestigious event and to win it was the cherry on top. We had such positive feedback on this garden, I hope that it inspires people to encourage wildlife into their gardens"
Will is a finalist for the 2018 RHS Young Designer of The Year competition at RHS Tatton Park Flower Show, with his garden 'At One'.
The garden is designed for a young professional couple as a relaxing, entertaining space. 'At One' demonstrates how it's possible to create a beautiful garden space for the benefit of both humans and wildlife. The garden has a contemporary design with a light and airy feel that incorporates plenty of homes for birds, bees, butterflies and insects to live and thrive as well as planting to sustain them.
"It's an awesome feeling to be nominated as a finalist, I cant wait to get the garden built. At One is the type of garden I've wanted to create at a for while."

Streetscapes Summer In Sussex
"I am hugely happy to come away from the show with a silver medal, it has been a fantastic experience. I loved working with the apprentices who built the garden, they did a stunning job."
Will is going to be designing a garden at this years Hampton Court Flower Show! Will's design will be in the city gardens category. The garden is a Celebration of Sussex and aims to show just what can be done in a small space. The gardens inspiration came from walks along the South Downs, with rivers, natural wildlife and wildflowers.
We approached Streetscape to construct the garden because they are an award-winning social enterprise dedicated to providing apprenticeships in landscape gardening. They are a fantastic company who take on 18-25 year olds who have been long-term unemployed. Their core goal is to build there apprentices skills and experiences, enabling them to move into and retain work after graduating.
"We are trying to capture Sussex in a contemporary way"
This is a fantastic project we are part of, we are designing a display in the Floral Marquee at The Chelsea Flower Show 2016. Will is working together with Plantbase nursery based in East Sussex and Garden Gems based in West London. The garden aims to tell a story as you walk round stand, it is the story of a girl growing up. We aim to show the major milestones in life, using plants and wicker figures.
"We are aiming to tell a story, our inspiration came from window displays, similar to Harrods and Selfridges at a Christmas"
