RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2013: Trailfinders Australian Garden

Best show garden chelsea 2013

One of the most talked about show garden designs at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the Trailfinders Australian Garden.

Presented by Fleming’s, this garden has won a gold medal and picked up the coveted Best Show Garden award – a fitting reward, since it’s their last year of competing.

The distinctive garden was designed by Phil Johnson, from Philip Johnson Landscapes, and is a brilliant example of how a garden can be sustainable and innovative.

The garden demonstrates plenty of ways in which rain and floodwater can be naturally harvested and reused in a residential setting and includes a billabong, waterfalls and even a rock gorge, plus plenty of great examples of native Australian planting.

Standing tall above the garden is a stunning studio made from reclaimed timber. It’s been cut into petal shapes and made into a flower design, to represent the shape of the Australian waratah flower, and certainly has the ‘wow’ factor.

Here’s the inspiration behind the design:
