Here at Antony Lionel Garden Design, we have been asked by the fantastic team at TAW Garden Landscapes to work alongside them to develop an amazing show garden for BBC Gardeners’ World Live 2021, at Birmingham NEC.
We couldn’t turn down the offer to work alongside this professional team of landscapers. So, to work we went.
The theme was a “A Very British Affair” and we came up with the concept of the “British Woodlands.” Sadly, these are dwindling, so being given the chance to show people how to bring nature and wildlife back in to our every-day surroundings was a real privilege.
As you will see from the designs, we have brought everything from the archetypal British woodland into this area, to create a relaxing and tranquil outside space: Picture the sound of birds singing, the gentle swishing of trees swaying in the breeze, the humming of insects and the pitter patter of rain drops against the living moss wall. Enjoy entertaining with friends at the elegant raised table while the rill flows through it cascading down the stone wall to the fire pit and seating area. Come home and forget the busy lifestyle in your own piece of tranquillity.
Now the design has been selected to be a part of the APL Avenue (Association of Professional Landscapers) at the show. We would love you to attend the show to see the garden in all its glory – and to take inspiration for your own garden. In the meantime, please follow Antony Lionel Garden Design as well as TAW Garden Landscapes on Facebook and Instagram, to keep up to date on the progress of the build.
