Welcome to Yorkshire Garden

Designed by Mark Gregory. The highlight of the 2019 Welcome to Yorkshire show garden will be an authentically built canal with flowing water and genuine canal lock gates.

Mark’s design also includes a towpath and a lock keeper’s lodge with a colourful garden and vegetable patch. This will be the 99th garden he has worked on at the prestigious show.

The design is inspired by Yorkshire’s proud history of industry, manufacturing and innovation but also the county’s stunning natural environment and many green spaces.

The canal featured will run next to a perennial meadow, and the planting will celebrate the rich diversity of native flora alongside cultivated varieties.

This atmospheric garden will evoke the very essence of the county, striking a balance between the industrial and the beautiful, demonstrating that a working lock can also be a place of tranquillity and charm.

The aim of the garden is to inspire those who see it, to visit Yorkshire and experience the county’s beauty first hand.
