RHS Malvern Spring Festival 2015

Our natural Sandstone paving featured in Silver Gilt awarded garden

Congratulations go to award-winning Pip Probert and the team at Outer Spaces Garden Design for winning Silver Gilt at the RHS Malvern Spring Festival 2015 with their Cornerstone Garden.

Pip’s show garden, which dazzled judges, was created with a more mature homeowner in mind – perfect for those who enjoy gardening and making the most of their outdoor space. It was designed around an intentionally small plot, ideal for suburban gardens where space is often minimal.  

Inspiring design for small spaces

“People do come to the show for inspiration,” says Pip.  “I wanted them to be able to visualise their own garden when they saw my design.  Due to the smaller plot size, there are no large sheds or greenhouses.  Instead, I featured a built-in cupboard with tiered, natural stone planters to help the storage area blend in.”

This is Pip’s 17th show garden.  Her last garden scooped a Gold medal at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show.  This is why she has been determined to maintain the standard at Malvern this spring and enlisted top garden suppliers, such as Bradstone, for help with her exhibit.

“Bradstone is a really good brand with beautiful stone and they’ve been great to work with,” explains Pip.  “The garden featured calming, pastel colourings and their Natural Sandstone paving in Fossil Buff really complimented the tone of the garden.”

Working in partnership with designers

Toby Stuart-Jervis, Commercial Director for Bradstone, comments: “We’ve really enjoyed working with Pip and Outer Spaces. Part of our vision is to provide customers with all the inspiration they need to create the garden of their dreams, and Pip’s garden is a great example of how a smaller plot can be transformed into a truly stunning space.

Our presence at Malvern is part of an ongoing programme of shows and exhibitions. Such events provide us with a great opportunity to inspire people to create outdoor spaces that will be the envy of their neighbours!”
