2012 RHS Chelsea Flower Show: Panache Garden

The Bradstone Panache garden is an exploration of how the vitality and energy found in woodland can be expressed in a garden setting through form, colour and atmosphere.

Features of the garden include a central sculpture, inspired by the innate energy of wood, which encircles a delicate tree in a swirl of colour reaching skywards representing growth. A tree stump sits alongside illustrating the end of one existence giving rise to a new opportunity for growth and vitality. Living curved walls created from an innovative use of Bradstone Panache edging product used as a wall tile with planting travel in a contrasting direction to the sculpture and increase in height to show movement and growing energy. This is continued in a seat and then path to continue the flow of energy so that the visitor becomes a part of the garden’s movement.

Bradstone on show

The unconventional use of Bradstone’s Panache garden paving range has ensured unity between the feel of the woodland and it’s functionality as a garden setting. Specially produced soft shades of Chocolate, Cream and Fudge Panache edging have been used for the wall, seat and path to suggest the staggered tree trunks of a wood and an earthy woodland track.

Containing up to 83% recycled material, Panache is a sustainable product, continuing the theme of regeneration perfectly. Soleirolia soleirolii provides the living green band along the wall top and through the paving.

The garden is planted with British natives that are enriched with garden plants that have a wild feel. Planting is largely green in colour and that contrasts with the brightly coloured sculpture with and more vibrant flowers growing around the sculpture expressing the idea of invigorated vitality close to where the tree has fallen.
