Working in tandem with a dedicated group from Kids Company, we developed a garden that won silver gilt at Hampton court – anecdotally the judges were divided, with half adamant the garden deserved Gold whilst some thought that one or two constructional flaws such as a …fleck of paint here or a poorly driven in nail there reduced the award to silver gilt – needless to say the Kids thought that their garden was pure gold.


Their identification with their garden, as well as their single minded dedication to its construction – they were happy to work from 7.30 in the morning till after 9.00 at night to ensure its succcesful completion- were just some of many signs of the benefits they derived from their exposure to landscape design and construction process.
