Andy Sturgeon wins Best Show Garden at Chelsea

Brighton-based designer Andy Sturgeon has won Best Show Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show with his garden designed for the Daily Telegraph.

Andy Sturgeon's Daily Telegraph garden has won the Best Show Garden in this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The garden was built by the online garden centre and sponsored by the Daily Telegraph.

It is described in this way on the RHS website:

Inspired by travel, this contemporary gravel garden brings together flavours of the Southern Cape, the maquis shrubland of the Mediterranean, the chaparral of California and Mexico and the matorral of central Chile.

Corten steel screens slice through the design, fusing architectural and sculptural qualities to define spaces and control views within the garden. Open clearings of sparsely planted gravel provide places to pause on a journey that culminates in a courtyard at the rear, where the shade of a stately cork oak and the sound of running water combine to create a contemplative retreat.
