A Golden Summer Retreat

Wednesday, Jul 27, 2016

Pickard Graduates Laura Arison and Amanda Waring have joined forces once again, this time at Hampton Court, designing “A Summer Retreat” – which won a Gold medal at this prestigious RHS show earlier this month.

The garden, inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement, featured stunning naturalistic planting, including delphiniums, nepeta and roses, contained by restrained geometric shapes in the form of hedging and dry stone walling.  The walling and bespoke raised summerhouse illustrate some of the finest aspects of British craftsmanship.

The garden is an exemplary illustration of simplicity, elegance and style in design.

We are proud of Laura and Amanda’s show garden record and wish them well for their future projects, both private and public.
