The timber chosen was reclaimed from Marwood Plant Hire on the Kent Medway, and the boards added masses of character as well as durability and strength.
About the garden
The RHS Garden for a Green Future draws attention to the impact that the changing climate is having on UK gardens and gardeners. The future of the quintessential British garden is changing and this design shows us how our gardens may look in the not too distant future. Alongside it demonstrates ways in which we can adapt to, and embrace, the changing climate.
