The Landscape Institute (LI) have announced that this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show features many LI members. As well as registered practices tackling some of the main challenges of the day.
Some of the UK’s leading landscape architects will be showcasing their work and promoting the landscape profession.
 
Gardens designed by landscape architects or garden designers who employ landscape architects include:
 
RHS Back to Nature Garden
Co-designed by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White. The garden draws inspiration from childhood memories triggered by the natural world. Key elements of the design include a hollow log, a den building area, a stream and a tree house all woven together by playful planting and trees.
 
After RHS Chelsea, much of the planting will feature in an NHS Mental Health Trust garden. This will also be designed by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge with Davies White Ltd.
