Replacement Windows and Conservatory specialist Anglian Home Improvements has been presented with a prestigious Flora Silver Gilt Award at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, for its striking 'Green, Black and White' show garden.
The garden, designed by Krista Grindley, is Anglia's first at Hampton Court and was praised by the panel of selected RHS judges for its colourful displays and eye catching features and finishes.
Anglian's Head of Marketing Melanie Russell said: "We are absolutely delighted to be presented with a Silver Gilt Award for our garden at Hampton Court. It is a real privilege to be involved in this prestigious event and massive thanks must go to our designer Krista and the team at Anglian for their creativity, dedication and hard work ensuring that the garden looks as spectacular as it does".
The garden design's aim is to inspire people to integrate their homes and gardens and create both outside and inside spaces that can be used for entertaining and relaxing in throughout the year.
Using a Victorian theme, inspired by the use of a Victorian style conservatory, Krista's garden fuses modern with traditional, including pieces such as an original 1888 fireplace rescued from a hotel and vineyard in Dorset; an outside sofa and table (made from contemporary materials and designed to be left permanently outside) and a bespoke bright annealed stainless steel rill and pool. Environmentally friendly elements are also abundant, from the use of a variety of sustainable materials and sourcing of all materials from UK suppliers, to the presence of numerous wildlife habitats, including bird and bug boxes, and planting that attracts wildlife helping to maintain a natural ecological balance in the garden.
The design itself grew out of a competition sponsored by Double Glazing specialist Anglian Home Improvements, which pitted the skills of nearly 30 third year Garden Design students from specialist horticultural college Capel Manor in Enfield, London.
Winner Krista, who now owns her own garden design company, Greenwork Design, based in Wanstead, East London said:"I am so excited that the garden has been given this award. It makes the past three weeks of hard work transforming our 131 square foot patch of earth into what now stands here, all worth it! My thanks go to Anglian for giving me the opportunity to exhibit my design at such a world-renowned event, and to the judges for seeing the garden's potential and presenting us with this accolade."
