The Homebase Teenage Cancer Trust Garden
This year’s Homebase Garden marks well-known garden designer and TV personality Joe Swift’s first Show Garden design for RHS Chelsea.
The garden is inspired by the power that plants and natural forms can have on an urban and suburban environment. Inspired by concerns about sustainability and water this is a dry and modern garden designed to be explored.
Four bold cedar wood frames will draw the long views through the garden whilst dividing the space up into distinct yet visually connected areas.
Stone and wood will be present in conventional garden use, as well as in more stylised forms such as oversized horizontally sliced boulders, a water feature and bespoke wooden sculptures to decorate, punctuate and energise the space.
Ideally visitors will be able to get close up to and touch the beautifully finished wooden frames and natural stone boulders around the edges.
Following the show the garden will be sold off with all proceeds donated to Teenage Cancer Trust, Homebase’s corporate charity and joint partner in the garden
