Led by award-winning designer Mike Hodges, the team at Hambrooks will construct a garden (10m x 12m) that symbolically epitomises the company’s continued evolvement and ability to keep abreast of current gardening trends.

A contemporary design based on outdoor living, its concept creatively fuses together the two elements of home entertainment and nature, to create an innovative and stylish ‘living’ room.

With our intemperate climate often affecting the use of our gardens, this design provides cover, warmth and light to create an ideal setting for outdoor socialising or relaxing, whatever the weather.

The contemporary design features a glass roof creating a veranda, while an open fireplace and two stainless steel vertical water features run into a ‘moat’ that surrounds the veranda, set with outdoor sofas and table.
