Pro Landscaper Magazine asked me and other '30 Under 30' winners to write a paragraph about our biggest challenge of 2015. Read my answer below -
"2015’s biggest challenge was designing and entering a conceptual show garden for RHS Hampton Court 2016.
Unlike traditional show gardens, conceptual gardens are often more about ideas, less about immaculate construction and a beautiful aesthetic. The concept has to be clear and the message decipherable by the general public. It is an interesting challenge trying to distill a conceptual theme into a garden setting.
Getting the garden accepted was the first challenge, finding sponsorship to get it built the second. Luckily we managed to find a charity that understood the idea and loved the concept. 2016 brings the challenge of building the garden and bringing it to life!"
