Billericay garden and landscape designer Rebecca Butterworth has won 2 prestigious prizes at this years Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. She won Gold Medal and First Place in the Best Conceptual Garden category.
Her high-concept garden installation used Terrasofta rubber landscape shavings by Dunweedin, made from recycled fork-lift truck tyres. The garden represented the importance of inner growth and self reflection. At its centre featured a geometric square filled with large-leaved hostas and Caladium, fineleaved Cyperus alternifolius, and apricot daylilies.
The main feature of the garden was its creative use of mirrors to make the garden appear to be endless. Not only an excellent trick to perform in a confined spaces at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, but also a great way to make a smaller garden appear more spacious.
Before becoming an award winning garden designer Rebecca Butterworth was a legal professional working in London. Rebecca went to the Billericay School and after working in law studied for a qualification in garden and landscape design.
Rebecca worked with Victoria Pustygina and Ludovica Ginanneschi to create this wonderful conceptual garden experience.
